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 charming little birds on both sides on top of a beautiful lace doilies which wrap around the diameter either way. They are finished off with gold foil lace trim as well as pretty gold Dresden trims and a lovely gold gimp to hang it with. The inside is also finished off with a sparkly gold 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.
