Santa Paper Honeycomb Decoration
Santa is the perfect rotund shape for this lovely bright red nostalgic paper decoration. Sometimes little things bring back the most memories – particularly at the festive time of year. Unfurling this honeycomb design (which starts flat), and hearing the paper crinkle as you do so, is oddly satisfying and gives those who had these decorations in years gone by a little tingle of warm nostalgia – a perfect start to Christmas.
Dimensions: 8 x 9.5cm
Materials: paper; cotton; iron
Honeycomb design (Christmas) decorations, and other ornamental creations, have been around since the reign of Victoria, but their popularity has ebbed and flowed over the years. The advent of cheaper, brighter, shinier and more intricate plastic foil based decorations in the 1970s eroded the market for the old-fashioned paper variants.
