Sturbridge Yankee Workshop has a large assortment when it comes to beautiful ways to trim your Christmas tree. Within the pages of the holiday 2012 catalog and on our website, we have a variety of handcrafted Ornaments and Tree Toppers to help you decorate your tree this year with distinctive style. From unique gourd carvings to many made in the USA options, we have tree decor for every home. You might consider any one of the ornaments mentioned here, as thoughtful gift ideas or gift toppers.
Made in Maine & Aromatic
Shown here to the left is a website exclusive ornament at Sturbridge. Our Embroidered Balsam Tree Ornament is a fragrant alternative, filled with fresh Maine balsam fir. Designed by Maine artist Harry Smith, the dark green embroidery against the cream colored muslin, offers the feeling of a walk through the Maine woods. The back reverses to a green corduroy and could also be the perfect “green” air freshener for your car. Made in Maine of course, this triangular shaped ornament is yours for the low price of $14.95.
Unique Gourd Carvings
Another fantastic option, featured earlier this season in our blog, would be our Cat & Gourd Ornaments. Hand carved from naturally dried gourds, these unique ornaments are handmade by Peruvian master carvers; modeled after a 4000 year old traditional craft. The painted detail in each ornament is exquisite. Whether you choose the black cat in honor of your pet, or the spotted owl for your love of birds, either would be a fine addition to your tree. Available now for $14.95 each with Free Shipping.
Pictured here to the left, we share our website exclusive Stainless Steel 3D Ornaments. Proudly made in Maine, these three dimensional ornaments are available in four design choices. Boasting a raised, ‘pop-out’ appearance, customers will have their choice of a cat, dog, snowman or star. Each ornament is shaped as a bulb to add just that little extra holiday spirit.
On a similar theme, our Stainless Steel Ornaments have the same stainless steel construction with three designs to select from. Both the 3D and regular metal ornaments at SYW, can be purchased for just $9.95 each.
Festive Tree Toppers
Need a change on the top of your tree this year? The tree toppers at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop are welcomed updates to the standard tree topper you might already have. To the left, our handcrafted Felt Star Tree Topper is made of wool fabric, and embellished with red wooden “berries,” hand stitched details, a red velvet bow, and silver tinsel. This star has been dressed up to evoke a cozy and homespun feel to your decor for $19.95 with Free Shipping.
Households with children will simply adore having ‘Ol Saint Nick appear at the top of their tree, with the help of our Santa Tree Topper. Website exclusive Santa appears joyful as he holds a bough of faux greenery, frosted berries and brass bells, tied in a sheer gold ribbon. His fabric coat is formal in design with faux brown fur trimming his coat, sleeves and matching hat. Accented by printed gold fabric to add further design detail.
