Mexican Christmas ornaments can be found in many places in Mexico, during the Christmas season, including Mexico City, Guerrero, Chiapas, Guanajuato, Oaxaca, Guadalajara and Puebla. And of course in our Mexican folk art store starting in early November! Because I select everything individually rather than buying at trade shows or from catalogues, I usually don't see Christmas ornaments to purchase in Mexico until late October. But keep your eyes open if you are traveling in Mexico at any time of the year because you'll be surprised to see unique small items that can be turned into ornaments even if that was not the artist's intention.
One of the most common materials used for Mexican Christmas ornaments is tin. We always have a good selection of tin ornaments in various shapes and sizes. Some, like these, are simply cut and painted and others are cut, punched, fabricated and painted:
