Tiny glass icicle decorations are perfect for the higher branches of a large tree or for a smaller tree. They’ll also look beautiful hung around your home, reflecting light and adding sparkle. Choose a set of twelve for maximum twinkling, or pick a smaller set to enjoy or gift.
Each icicle is approximately 8cm long and 7mm in diameter. The hanging thread adds an extra 10cm to the length.
The tin measures 11cm x 8.4cm x 2.4cm and holds 12 tiny icicles. Each tin will contain 6 clear and 6 frosted icicles.
How are the icicles made?
We start by cutting long glass rods into more manageable lengths. These are heated and manipulated in a flame allowing a hanging loop and twists to be added. The icicles are then annealed. Hanging threads are added, and icicles are packed in a felt pouch and metal tin.
What are the icicles made from?
The icicles are made from durable borosilicate glass. This is the same material as the Pyrex dishes you’ll find in many kitchens. Clear borosilicate glass catches and reflect light.
Glass decorations are unlikely to need much looking after. They can be polished with a soft cloth, and if necessary cleaned with soap and water.
If you choose to hang your decorations outside all year round check the hanging thread for wear and replace as necessary.
Using these over the winter holidays? Store your decorations in the box and felt wrapping they arrived in to ensure they stay safe until next Christmas.
Your glass decorations come packed in a metal tin and felt pouch which stops the icicles from bumping against each other. The tin provides a safe home for your decorations when they’re not making your home sparkle.
Decorations come with a leaflet describing the processes and glasses used, making them extra giftable.
