Crafty Mishmash introduces us to her vintage steckpyramide which are part of the German traditional Christmas decorations consisting of hand-carved wooden figures in a pyramid. When the candles heat up, the circular platforms start to spin!

    my family had an absolutely beautiful and very ornate one of these when I was growing up. I loved setting it up every year but I really wish I knew where it was now!

    I’ve always loved these. They make a lovely addition to any Christmas celebration. I have never realized what they were called; my New Year’s goal (one of them) is to be able to say “Stekpyramide” correctly. Do you think I can manage it?
