Heirloom Crochet Snowflake Ornaments

Holiday entertaining pieces are such a lovely way to style your home during Christmas. Heirloom Crochet Snowflake Ornaments are a beautiful addition to any tree trimming or decorating that may be in order. Crochet handiwork, along with other forms that include knitting, weaving & embroidery can be dated back for centuries to countries including Ireland, England, France, Italy, Belgium, Holland & Denmark just to name a few. The word itself has French origins which is derived from croc or croche that means hook. It may be identified by it’s lacey, delicate appearance. The art of crochet allowed the Irish relief from the potato famine in the mid 1800’s as it was a time where women handcrafted intricate collars & cuffs on blouses after their chores for the day. The skill was able to fetch them good money from buyers abroad to help during those difficult times. If you do not have a vintage collection of crochet snowflake ornaments of your own, the art is still practiced today from time-honored patterns. You may learn to make your own set or they may be purchased from a skilled artisan.

Small clear plastic shoe bins are a practical solution to store many holiday ornaments as you can identify contents quickly. The bins may be stacked in larger containers for space saving, organized solutions. Remove any hooks that may have been used to display the snowflakes. Line the bottom of the bin with tissue paper. Place a row of ornaments over the top then layer additional paper over them. Continue stacking the ornaments & tissue paper until all of the pieces are contained. Place the lid over the contents & store in a climate controlled space such as a closet for use next season.
