With a traditional palette of red, green, and white, illustrator Kirsten Ulve channeled her love of Christmas, vintage ornaments, and Scandinavian folk art to create unique digital illustrations of four holiday icons: a prancing reindeer with antlers; an ornament tied with a bow and ready to hang; a tree topped with a star; and a stocking holding a teddy bear and a sprig of holly.
The first recorded mention of decorated fir trees comes from early 17th-century Germany; the writer describes trees, brought indoors during the Christmas season and adorned with apples, gold foil, and other embellishments. German immigrants brought their Christmas customs with them to America. In the 1800s, American magazines began publishing images of decorated trees, and trimming the tree became a popular and fashionable tradition in homes across the country.
In the 19th century, Americans embellished their holiday trees with paper ornaments, sweets, candles, popcorn, and other homemade items. Beginning in the 1890s, Woolworth’s five-and-dime chain and, later, other department stores, imported blown-glass ornaments from Germany. By the mid-20th century, hundreds of thousands of Christmas ornaments mass-produced in Japan and other countries were imported and sold in the U.S. In addition to the more modern, commercial tree decorations available today, unique, hand-blown or handcrafted baubles continue to be produced by small companies in America and Europe.
