This beautiful, delicate set of pine needle ornaments will make the perfect addition to your Christmas ornament traditions. The perfect Christmas collectibles, these ornaments are the ideal sustainable Christmas tree decorations. They are also lightweight, so they won’t weigh down the branches of your Christmas tree, or can be hung anywhere else easily. Best of all, little hands and pets will have a hard time breaking them, unlike glass baubles.
These ornaments are handmade out of pine needles by a group of artisans in Guatemala. Their work ensures that no part of the tree goes to waste and requires no fabrication, which makes this set truly eco-friendly. The pine needles are gathered and then tied together with delicate but strong white thread by this group of Guatemalan women. They created four different shapes using the pine needles: a heart ornament, a stocking/boot ornament, a pine tree-shaped ornament, and a star ornament. This means that each ornament could belong to a different family member!
These ornaments would look beautiful on a mantelpiece, a front porch, or over each person’s stocking. Sustainable Christmas gifts and ornaments can be beautiful and unique - these ornaments prove it.
