New Digi on the 5s: Acorn Ornaments

What’s even better than vintage glass ornaments? Vintage glass ornaments that replicate nature, that’s what! Acorns, pinecones, anything nut-like or seed-pod-esque that could dangle from a tree and be used for splendid Christmas decorating is fair game for my fancy. Obsessing over glass-glitter dusted pinecones and acorns is practically a national pastime around here. I want to hang them from everything in my house! Just check out the cuteness factor on these little reproduction mercury glass ones (photo via Pinterest).

Not only are acorns symbols for good luck and prosperity, but for renewal and growth. I think they are the perfect subject matter for crafting for the Thanksgiving-to-Christmas season, as every time you step outside, you could potentially stumble over a pile of them. Little treasures dropping from the trees!

It was only natural that I had to draw a few of them, and I’ve remixed a couple sweet ones and added a new one for our Happiest Holidays digital download collection. May I present Acorn Ornaments!

This digital set is composed of four images — two variations of the acorns (one with ribbon cords, one without) and two sentiments that take you from our grateful harvest season straight into the holidays. Acorn Ornaments would be sweet featured individually, and with a little Photoshop tweaking, you can come up with bushels of ideas for them.

We have some enchanting cards made with these special gems, and I hope to add mine to the list a bit later today. For now I hope you’ll run around and see the adorable acorn cards by these talented designers!

You’ve heard about the kinds of ornaments that make my heart sing. What ornaments strike YOUR fancy? Let me know in the comments. I love to hear about your passions and nostalgic memories, and I may take inspiration for an upcoming collection! Ta ta, my dears!

Why have I never come across vintage acorn ornaments until now! Love them! In the meantime, your digi acorns will keep me happy. P.S. I like how you explain the meaning behind your art, such as the acorns in this case. Vintage glass ornaments in general bring back wonderful memories for me.

Such a darling set! I love ornaments and can't seem to get enough of them! Some years ago my husband and I took went on a tour of the outdoor Christmas markets in Germany - oh the sight, sound and aromas were wonderful! I purchased so many traditional pewter and wooden ornaments there and love looking at them on our tree. And if you ever want to overdose on Christmas ornaments visit the Kathe Wohlfahrt Christmas store in the old town of Rothenburg in Germany.
