I REALIZE THE DESCRIPTION IS WORDY, BUT IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO READ IT IN IT'S ENTIRETY - I INCLUDE CARE TIPS AND INFORMATION ON PIECES USED AND COLLECTED... THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
In a Rainbow Ombré Color. With These Vintage Special Accents: 2 VINTAGE Indented Ornaments; A VINTAGE Flocked Elf; Christmas Tree (light cover); Mini Plastic Elf (green); A VINTAGE Jewel Brite Ornament (the gold diorama one with the poinsettia); 2 VINTAGE "Word" Ornaments Merry Christmas in Gold and Jack and Jill in purple - this one marked Shiny Brite; 2 Small Bottle Brush Trees; & A VINTAGE Flocked Santa. 11 pieces, 7 are VINTAGE.
This Piece also features around 19 what I call "Vintage Special" ornaments - these are the ones that maybe have designs, the silky wrapped ones, or shapes (like bells), there's an ombré Shiny Brite one there too! This doesn't count ALL of the tiny surprises sprinkled throughout the wreath! & a mix of Vintage (67) and Newer Ornaments, in mostly solid colors. 127 TOTAL ORNAMENTS AND PIECES ON THIS WREATHsee my note below!
And a wire hanger on the back. And the time spent shopping for them, and collecting nice newer ones is time also spent. And, most of all, remember - handcrafted items are just that, time and care are put into them, made by hand, not a machine. No two are exactly alike!My note regarding ornaments used. Collecting vintage ornaments is fun, but it is hard to collect enough to completely finish off a wreath.
I try to use as many vintage pieces as I can, and fill in with newer pieces to complete the look. I try to make sure that the vintage ones are more featured, and newer will fill in or be the background pieces. I have also recently tried to keep track of the ratio on each wreath so you know what's included the number can be off by a little, when your creating, you just go with the flow and sometimes loose track LOL!On this one, I counted approx 127 total ornaments and pieces. 93 of them are vintage pieces. That's 73% vintage on this wreath I try my best to keep it about 50%! I far exceeded that with this one!
^^^^^^^^^^^DISPLAY AND STORAGE CARE NOTES. Due to the fragility of glass ornaments, vintage or new, I ONLY recommended for indoor use, they are not meant for outdoor use. STORE WITH CARE--extreme temperature (like in the attic or garage) can cause both the glue and glass to shrink and expand and this can cause ornaments to crack, pop off, or break off. If an ornament does come off, you can easily put it back on with a hot temperature glue gun.
I took some photos of some of the supplies used in my hand-crafted items if you'd like to see them, let me know and I'll check for this item - I had to remove them from my listings because not everyone reads descriptions and they think they are included. The measurements of the finished wreath are about. 15" - 15 1/2" diameter. Remember that this is a handmade item, and will show things like maybe glue strands, or other things that happen during the process... These are the kind of qualities that make handmade items unique - All true handmade items are one of a kind due to the process of each individual that makes them ; THE VINTAGE ORNAMENTS: They may have scratches, oxidation spots, and fading from years of use.
THIS ALL ADDS TO THE VINTAGE CHARM OF THESE PIECES! Pictures are always part of my description, and purchasing my items is your agreement that you have read the description and examined all photos...
