Christmas Decorating Tip #4

By November 25, 2012

Follow me on:

You buy a beautiful glass Christmas ornament, spend more money than you should have for the collectible piece and when it's time to hang it on the tree, you cringe a little. It's so heavy that you're not sure the loop and cap will stay secure. Although that doesn't happen as much as it used to, some of the older Christmas ornaments, such as Radkos, were heavy enough to make the loop slip a bit.

A few of the manufacturers will occasionally double-loop the ornament. Inserting two of the loops into the caps to make it a little more secure.

I've done that in the past when I had a broken ornament to take apart, but the good news you can also buy a extra caps and hoops in various sizes and finishes from D. Blumchen & Company. Buy some extras to keep in the Christmas tool box and the next time you have a slipping ornament, make it a little more secure with another loop.
