Icicles

The tradition to decorate a Christmas tree appeared only in 1800, and before that time people would bring a didukh (the reaped sheaf) that symbolized welfare, fertility and justice because hard work is always rewarded by generous crop. The ethnographer Vasyl Skurativs’kyy describes this act in the following manner: “A few bunches of wheat tied with separate straws were made into a great sheaf. A three-part branchings were made in the bottom for the didukh to stand firmly. The didukh’s branches – bunches taken together and forked at the top – were framed with colourful ribbons, paper and dried flowers, icicles and bagels to one’s taste and preferences”. Our paper willow is made from paper, wrapped and glued in the form of a straw, then it is painted in golden or silver, and a jour snowflakes are created. Cotton bagels and icicles are formed from cotton soaked with glue, are toned with gentle pearl gradients, decorated with beads and ribbons. Everything is just like taken from granny’s coffer from the attic. Bright winter flowers made of natural textile as well as other items are soaked with glue mixture, flowers are then formed and put on wire stem that can be bent according to the Christmas tree decoration idea, and be used in holiday compositions.
