A literary Christmas ornament decorated with text from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

When I found a vintage paperback of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" for sale, I couldn't resist using it to make some literary holiday decorations. In this globe ornament, words from the classic Christmas story float like continents atop a decoupaged background of berry-colored papers.

This lightweight ball decoration can be used as a decorative ball or a hanging ornament. Hanging hardware and string are included and can be easily added without the use of tools.

* 3" diameter, paper-covered, polystyrene ball
* Hanging hardware included
* Packaged in string-wrapped gift box
* Coated with a UV-resistant acrylic sealant
* Not recommended for outdoor use

This ornament comes packaged in a gift box with a Palimpsestic label. Orders are shipped via USPS within 3-5 business days.

I rely on the serendipity of thrift stores and garage sales for most of my books. When I'm looking for a specific title, I purchase the lowest condition copy available from a dealer. I never use new or collectible-quality materials in my work.
