Retro Troll Hanging Decoration

Introduced in the late 1950s by Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam, Trolls were inspired by old Scandinavian folklore, before becoming one of the United States’ biggest toy fads in the early 1960s – right through to the 1990s. Make your very own troll decoration using colourful wool and gems.
