Description

Beautiful sugar plum ornaments, handmade from spun cotton, and artfully covered with German glass glitter. Lovely vintage look reminiscent of the late Victorian era.

Size:  about 40mm in diameter (1″ 1/2).

These shimmering beauties make for beautiful Christmas ornaments and look charming hanging from the Christmas tree.

Our sugar plum ornaments are of premium quality and have been entirely hand-made. We use ø 40 mm spun cotton balls from our own store. They are finished with a handmade paper leaf and a green metal wire loop.

Just like any of our glittered ornaments, sugar plums can be made to order. If our stock is low, please contact us (nicolas@spunnys.com) and we’ll quickly manufacture what you need.

Handling sugar plum ornaments – questions and answers

 

Will some glitter come off the plums and end up on my floors? 

No, the glitter won’t come off the shapes unless you rub the plums against each other. We use liquid glue, not spray, and we apply a generous amount of it before covering the ornaments with glass glitter. Also, glass glitter is different from metallic glitter because it doesn’t come off as easily.

 

Can I touch the sugar plum ornaments with my hands without cutting myself? 

Yes, absolutely.  However, they should always be handled with care.

 

How heavy are they? 

A sugar plum ornament made with a ø 40mm spun cotton ball weighs about 10 grams.

 

Is the glitter edible ? 

NO! It is made with real glass. The plums are not toys and should not be given to young children.

 

What is the relation between sugar plums and Christmas ? 

Sugar Plum was the name of the cute little fairy in the Tchaikovsky nutcracker. Sugar plums were also mentioned in the 1823 Clement C. Moore’s poem “A Visit From St. Nicholas” (aka “Twas the Night Before Christmas”) (source: wikipedia)
