After Christmas last year I bought a bunch of ornaments on clearance. I have had a lot of fun this Christmas coming up with fun ways to incorporate the ornaments in my decorating. I saw an idea similar to this on Pinterest. I didn't pin it so not sure where the idea came from...sorry.
I started out with an old picture frame I found at a yard sale over the summer. I primed and then spray painted it a flat black. The ornaments I planned to use were shiny so I used flat paint so they wouldn't compete.
I used the painted frame, 4 ornaments, white ribbon and an "A" I found in the Dollar Spot at Target.
I dismantled the back of the frame and took out all the screws and moved them to the top. If I had a staple gun (which is on my Christmas list) I would have stapled things on instead of using the screws.
I cut the ribbon and played around with different lengths until I had it the way I wanted.
I stuck the ribbon under the screws and then tightened them down, then cut off the extra ribbon.
It is now sitting on my mantle until I find where I want to hang it.
This was an simple project that cost less then $2 to make.
