how did you get these to successfully print with such a tiny base adhesion area? I'd like to print some... but I am concerned it will tip over most of the way through the print.

It is written in summary - you must add BRIM for better adhesion:
"Must be printed upside down and you must add larger brim/skirt (8-10mm width)."

How was the swirled effect on the red icicle achieved? (5th bauble from the left of first picture, 3rd from left on second picture)

I used Velocity Painting (painting patterns on flat surface by speed changes) with diagonal lines pattern.

And finally was both red icicles polished in aceton vapors.

Thanks! I'll have to try that out.

The following files seem to require a larger handle size for some reason.
cone-120b.stl
cone-120d.stl
cone-120y.stl
cone-140b.stl
cone-140d.stl
cone-140l.stl
cone-140x.stl
cone-140y.stl
egg-110b.stl
needle-140b.stl
needle-140x.stl

Checked and I didn't apply any scaling...

Thank you for the info.
This is my mistake while scaling some sizes (I rescaled bottom cylinder too).
I repaired it and upload new stl files (with _fixed in name).

Awesome, thanks. I am loving these ornaments!

Thanks for sharing these Tomas, they look great!
Will definitely be printing some on the weekend in transparent PLA colours.
