The ad-supported website provides all kinds of free “How It’s Made” videos, including two videos (linked below) that explain how glass ornaments and artificial Christmas trees are made.

When you get to the site, a 30-second video commercial launches. When the advertisement is over, you can watch the educational videos that include: 


This video demonstrates how glass blowers create Christmas tree ornament bulbs and figurines, and then shows how they are colored and decorated. You’ll also discover how the stems are made and capped before the ornament is boxed and shipped to stores.


This video shows how artificial Christmas trees are made, including building the steel framework. You’ll find out how sheets of green PVC plastic are shredded to make simulated pine needles. Watch, as workers crimp the artificial foliage together, assemble branches, and attach them to the framework to build a holiday tree.
