The ornaments can also be used as gift tags or embellishments for brown paper packages tied up with strings. So if you’re looking to add some antique style to your holiday décor this Christmas season, Old World Primitives has tree-ready, vintage-inspired art pieces that will add a regal flair to those pine needles.
