Hand-Painted Christmas Tree Balls - Preservers of Family Treasures and Exclusive Christmas Gifts

The Christmas season - warmth and love fill the air, the celebration of family is here... Every year, the entire family gathers around the Christmas tree, eagerly anticipating the joyous time together, culinary delights, and the annual gift-giving. Everyone, young and old, enjoys adorning the Christmas tree, unearthing the precious decorations from the shelves. These cherished ornaments are carefully preserved year after year, passed down from generation to generation as a reminder of love-filled times. Christmas decorations keep the traditions and warmth of our parents and grandparents alive.

  • Sometimes, such a glass memory shatters, depriving us of something significant. UkrGifts online gift shop presents you with extraordinary and exclusive wooden Christmas tree ornaments, handcrafted by Ukrainian master craftsmen. Thanks to the robust and high-quality wood material, the longevity of these ornaments is guaranteed. Even children can beautify the Christmas tree independently without worrying about damaging the decorations. Thus, our wooden Christmas tree balls make creative and sustainable gifts for everyone!
  • Colorful Christmas Balls Painted According to Old Traditions Not only in Ukraine, but also in all Slavic countries, people cherish colorful and traditional Christmas tree ornaments. Polish glass Christmas balls with intricate designs and delicately painted Russian Christmas balls with folkloric motifs are well-known examples. Mexican Christmas balls are also brightly painted and might sometimes be mistaken for artwork from Ukraine. It's the artistry of two different continents.
  • In Germany, there are, of course, beautiful and traditional Christmas tree balls as well. For instance, the Hutschenreuther porcelain Christmas balls surprise every year with new motifs while remaining faithful to tradition. The turned Christmas balls from the Erzgebirge, centuries-old craftsmanship, never go out of style. These small wooden artworks are renowned and beloved all over the world. We, too, offer special wooden Christmas balls in our store, exclusively made in Ukraine and hand-painted with vibrant colors.

    Ukrainian Petykivka painting

Why are Hand-Painted Christmas Balls with Petrykivka Painting So Unique?

Our ornaments are entirely handcrafted in Ukraine. The process consists of several steps:

  • First, the material is carefully selected. Following tradition, maple or linden wood is used. The wood must be completely dried before further processing.
  • The dried wood is then handed to a turner, who creates two halves of the ball, hollows them out, and joins them together to ensure a perfect fit. Shaping the wood requires a skilled master who is well-versed in working with wood.
  • Next, the wooden ball is passed into the hands of a Ukrainian artist, a master of Petrykivka painting. Petrykivka painting is a part of Ukraine's cultural heritage. Originally originating in a small Ukrainian village, this painting technique was inscribed into UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2013.
  • Each master has their own style and paints the figures and decorations in their individual and highly creative way. Gouache colors on honey-based paints are used for this purpose. The artist applies the patterns without any stencils, making each Christmas ball unique, personal, and magical. Finally, the ball is coated with four layers of var
    nish.

Each hand-painted Christmas tree ball is distinctive and represents not only an artistic but also a cultural value, adorned with the world-renowned Petrykivka painting. It embodies a piece of the Ukrainian soul and the passion of Ukrainian artists. Their work demonstrates a love for life and the beautiful and enchanting aspects and symbols of this world. While the nature on the Christmas tree balls may appear fairy-tale-like, they are alive and enduring, just like love and the world itself. It is the heritage of generations that lives on in each unique piece of art you hold in your hands.

Exclusive Christmas Balls with Petrykivka Painting

Exclusive Christmas Balls with Petrykivka Painting are not mere souvenirs; they are a sensory gift with history and tradition, a result of the creative and extensive work of Ukrainian artists.

Cheesy Christmas Balls... What is kitsch? Are, for example, colorful Ukrainian Christmas balls considered kitsch? Are they too colorful or too bright? Well, Ukraine is colorful ūüėÄ

Nostalgic Christmas Balls - Why are They So Popular? Fine craftsmanship is increasingly appreciated today. Even people who already have everything will acquire beautifully handcrafted items.

Christmas decorations made from natural materials such as wood are extremely popular. They are sustainable, as they are unbreakable and can be used for many years. Even small children and cats cannot harm this tree ornament.

Exclusive Christmas balls add a special touch to every Christmas tree and also showcase the good taste of the "tree decorator". Handmade and hand-painted Christmas balls fulfill this role wonderfully.

Our Christmas balls are both nostalgic and exclusive little works of art, created according to Ukrainian tradition and painting, passed down from generation to generation.
