Holiday Ornament Tree, Corning Museum of Glass

Glassblowers at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York., made the more than 2,000 ornaments that cover the 14-foot tall tree that has become a holiday tradition.

The first tree in 2008 was just eight feet tall and held over 600 of the colorful handmade ornaments.

Visitors can participate in the making of a glassblown ornament, snowman or another glass object in the studio on the museum campus.
