Last winter, we featured some great Chicago Christmas ornaments.
These Chicago-centric Christmas ornaments included:
This Christopher Radko Chicago ornament makes another great option for those looking to celebrate the second city on their Christmas tree this year.
The Christopher Radko Chicago ornament features famous buildings in Chicago’s skyline such as the Sears Tower and Tribune Tower. Additionally, the fabulous ornament features the famous Chicago Art Institute lions and Buckingham fountain.
As a Chicago resident who loves the city’s famous skyline, I believe this glass Christmas ornament belongs on every Christmas tree. At six inches tall, however, it is probably best on larger Christmas trees.
We love Kate Spade’s classic style. During the 2013 Christmas season we featured a cookie cutter inspired Kate Spade Christmas ornament. For the 2014 Christmas season, this Kate Spade Christmas ornament makes a classic, yet thrilling, addition to any Christmas tree.
Hanging from a black ribbon, the gold plate and crystal ornament measures 2.75 inches in diameter. The shimmery bauble is topped with Kate Spade’s signature spade shaped charm.
With such a classic style, I would recommend this ornament for anyone wanting a gold-themed traditional Christmas ornament. As it is not over powering, this Christmas ornament should work on any Christmas tree– making it a great gift.
I love food and cooking and love the idea of including your favorite foods on your family’s Christmas tree. This metal chili ornament, like the previously featured glass red onion ornament, is a great option.
The metal chili ornament hangs from a dark blue ribbon and comes in a dark blue gift box. A shimmering trinket, it was made from metal alloy.
If you are looking for a way to celebrate a trip to mexico, a love of spicy food, or the American Southwest, this may be the perfect Christmas ornament for you or a friend.
If you live in Florida, or wish you did, you might want to design a tropical themed Christmas tree this year. If your 2014 Christmas tree will have a tropical touch, this pink flamingo ornament makes a great addition. Made from Buri fiber, it adds a natural and fun touch to the tree.
At approximately six inches tall, the flamingo ornament easily stands-out even on the largest of trees. Meanwhile, the pink Christmas ornament is an affordable option, at approximately $7.
One prior purchaser of the pink flamingo ornament wrote:
I collect flamingos and these are adorable. I put them on my tree and use them for “gift tags” on my pink and read Christmas presents. Who wouldn’t get a smile from these?
Last year, we featured a great number of Disney’s shoe ornaments. This Mushu shoe ornament is a great addition to the collection and makes a great gift for fans of Mulan. Across the ornament are great details including Dragon-inspired scales, gold and pearl like designs, and the ornament has Mushu wrapped around its heel.
The Mushu shoe ornament was designed by Costa Alavesos and the bottom of the shoe was signed by the artist. Like other Disney shoe ornaments, the Mushu shoe ornament was made from Resin and measures approximately 3.25 inches tall. While the red shoe ornament can stand-alone on a shelf, it comes with an ivory satin ribbon to hang it on your tree.
Celebrate Easter with these beautiful spring blossom ornaments. The twenty four ornaments come in twelve colors matching all colors of the rainbow. While the cute spring blossoms come in a variety of colors, they all match making a classy look in your home.
The spring blossom ornaments measure 1.5 inches wide and are 1.25 inches tall. Light-weight, they are made of plywood.
In addition to using these floral ornaments to decorate your home, you can use them as drink markers or extra baubles decorating wrapped gifts. Therefore the plywood baubles make a great hostess, Easter, or new home gift this year.
This Easter ornament kit allows you to hang ornaments in your home this spring. The DIY kit makes eight Easter ornaments measuring about 3 inches wide and 4 inches tall. Half of the ornaments look like yellow chicks with adorable orange noses while the other half resemble white bunnies with cute pink noses and white whiskers.
The ornament kit includes:
- Pre-cut shapes and papers
- Googly Eyes
To make the Easter ornaments you also need:
- A pencil
- Small glue dots
- A glue stick
Last year, we featured a few great Christmas ornaments for beer lovers, including this Guinness glass ball ornament. This pilsner ornament will add a fun frothy beer to any Christmas tree or other decor. Made for a craft beer lover and their family, the Christmas ornament measures approximately 4 inches tall.
Made in Germany, the pilsner ornament was handcrafted from glass, metal, and non-toxic paint.
One fan of the pilsner ornament wrote:
Frothy Beer: Perfect choice for the person that loves their beer! Brought a smile to my friend!
At under five dollars, this hand-crafted Christmas ornament is a great deal.
Love the Monkees? Or Christopher Radko Christmas ornaments? Consider grabbing this set of Christopher Radko Monkees ornaments currently available on E-bay.
Found here, the Christopher Radko ornaments feature cartoon-like monkeys dressed in Hawaiian shirts. Two monkeys are featured playing guitars while the others are playing drums and other instruments. The detailed musical monkey ornaments are accented with shimmery glitter.
The cute Christmas tree ornaments were made in Italy and are in new condition with tags. Collectors of Christopher Radko, general Christmas ornaments, Monkees gear, or monkey items will adore this set of four Christmas ornaments.
I packed up my Christmas tree today. The ornaments my Reddit Santa sent me are in a box along with my handmade ornaments (glass and clay) and my favorite brussel sprouts ornament. I’m taking time to focus on a few other websites for now, my Valentine’s Day site and another focused on newborn baby’s onesies.
My writing about Christmas ornaments won’t be hidden away as long as these ornaments, as it might be hard to find a Christmas tree this summer/ fall.
Have a great 2014!
