Copies of ornaments from the Melitopol Museum, which were prepared by the museum staff especially for the project, were used in the decoration of the fir tree.

The ornament runs along the Christmas tree as large ribbons, and thin ribbons around the red balls. The whole fir tree seems to be placed on a cart with a wooden wheel and wicker sides, on which jugs and sheaves of cereal crops are placed. They symbolize the fertile Zaporozhye lands.
