Christmas (Weihnachtsmann) Ornaments

Christmas Ornaments Made with Cutout Cookie Cutters: Most commonly made of copper, tin, stainless steel, aluminum, or plastic, these cutouts are the simplest of the cookie cutters; the cutter is pressed into cookie dough that has been rolled flat to produce the shape of the cutter's outline.

Christmas Ornaments Made with Cookie Molds: These molds are usually made of wood, ceramic, or plastic. Springerle molds are the oldest examples of these. A cookie mold typically has an ornate design embossed into the surface; the mold is pressed into the cookie dough to produce an embossed design. Signature Ornaments by Gorky Gonzalez ***

Craft Scherenschnitte Christmas Ornaments: Scherenschnitte which means "scissor cuts" in German, is the art of papercutting design. The art work often has symmetry within the design, and common forms include silhouettes, valentines, and love letters. The art tradition was founded in Switzerland and Germany in the 16th century, and was brought to Colonial America in the 18th century by immigrants who settled primarily in Pennsylvania.
      Scherenschnitte make light weight, detailed ornaments that can be hung on the weakest of branches. Cutting such delicate work takes patience and practice, but once you've mastered the skill, you will be able to decorate an entire tree for mere pennies. patterns by Alison * scherenschnitte on eggs * love birds and pine tree * German traditions celebrated at N.C.

Chrismon Ornaments: Chrismon trees are a popular variation of the Christmas tree developed by Frances Kipps Spencer, a member of the Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, Virginia. She originated the concept in 1957 when she set out to create decorations appropriate for a church's Christmas celebrations. The ornaments she created using leftover supplies used for wrapping Christmas presents quickly became popular, so Spencer began creating additional ornaments and wrote a series of how-to books. After her death in 1990, Spencer willed the rights to the Chrismons name and patterns to the Ascension church to continue its non-profit ministry.       
      The Chrismon tree is highly symbolic, conveying the life of Christ and the meaning of Christmas through commonly found items and easily understood symbols borrowed or modified from other sources. The tree is evergreen, representing eternal life, and decorated with traditional and modified ancient Christian symbols, called Chrismon. which are usually handmade by members of a local congregation using beads, sequins, glitter and styrofoam in colors of white and gold.  What is a Crismon? * The Pearl of Great Price Chrismon Ornament * Craft baby Jesus in a walnut shell * Needlepoint Crismons * Crismons defined * Paper Crismons * Beading Crismons * Crismons Ministry * Making Beaded Felt Crismons * Christian Ornaments - Basic Shapes * Wooden Crismons * Children's Crismon Kit * More varieties of Crismons  * Christian Symbols for Crismons - patterns * Crismons on the Christmas Tree * Crismon photos * Christian Symbols * Fish Eaters * Rudolf Koch * Christian Ornaments
