Front Door Wreath: Framed Ornaments

December 2, 2011 by 37 Comments

After a few traditional Front Door Wreath in style and shape I was ready for a little change!!!  I had a large frame lying around that I wanted to do something with, it was collecting too much dust!  I gave it some Christmas Spirit a covering of bright red spray paint!
Front Door Wreath: Framed Ornaments

Can you believe it’s already this time of year again!?!

I searched every row in Hobby Lobby for the right ornaments (several times).  But I have to say my store is pretty picked over, maybe because they started selling Christmas in July, ya think!?!
I knew I needed unbreakable ornaments too so that added to the dilemma!  I checked a few places and then Target came through!!!  Eight (I only used five) ornaments all in a box: the perfect color, size and non-shatter!!!
I grabbed some ribbon I had on hand and used the hook that was already on the frame to hang the ornaments from the frame.  I used the same hook to hang the frame from my favorite door jewelry with the same ribbon I’ve been using for the last two months!

Total price: $5.00 (cost of ornaments).  Total Time: 5 minutes.  Have I mentioned before that I totally love it when things are simple!?!  Especially during such a busy season!!!  Do you love it!?!?  At this point in our remodel, we’re thinking we should enter in the HGTV show, Curb Appeal, so to have a fun bright focal point is totally necessary!!!

And do me a favor, don’t look behind this door!  I have all the goodies from Christmas that I’ve decided need to find another family tucked behind there until I can make a run to my favorite charity dropoff: our local Safe Haven.

  3. […] Sure, wreaths have traditionally been of a circular nature, but if you want yours to stand out, how about trying something square? Find (or paint) a square frame red to become your “wreath,” and hang non-shatter ornaments from the frame’s hook. I love the red, white, and green color scheme in this one. It’s festive, different, and definitely merry.{found on site}. […]
