Old World Christmas has been making gorgeous glass ornaments like this one since 1974. They are experts in the process, which follows a process that was invented in 1874 in Germany. They take glass tubes and use high-heat torches to shape each ornament into its desired design. Then, the glass is filled with a liquid silver solution to give them a shiny, mirrored effect. From there, the glass is gradually cooled so as to deter the glass from breaking too easily. The final step of the process is meticulous hand-painting. When needed, the artist adds glue and bright glitter to give the ornament an extra sparkle. So get cozy on your tree with the Sleeping Bag Ornament by Old World Christmas.
