These lovely little Vintage look “Bonbonniere” which in french means a small container for confectionery, are the perfect ornament to fill with sweets and treats to hang from the tree or to give as a sweet gift.

I have made these completely by hand by carefully adding vintage German images of Santa in his sleigh being pulled by Reindeer on top of a white lace doily. In the background are the words to the poem “The Night before Christmas”. It is finished off with green or red foil lace trim as well as pretty silver or gold Dresden trims and a lovely silver or gold gimp to hang it with. The inside is also finished off with sparkly silver star buttons.

Many layers of Decoupage ensure that they are quite sturdy although I don’t recommend adding too much weight just to be safe. They are finished inside and out with a shiny Decoupage coating to add resilience and beauty.

The dimensions will vary slightly due to their handmade nature but they are approximately 3″ in diameter across the top opening and 5 1/2″ in height.
