30 Days of Handmade Gift Giving Blog Hop ~ Day 25 Project 4

Project 4!

I got this idea from Pintrest and have been dying to try it. I had several frames that were broken during the move so it was perfect for this project since you don't need the glass!

You spray paint or hand paint the frame with color of your choice. Wooden frames work best. I really like the way the Krylon brand spray paint  works.  I usually will buy no name brands but sometime the name just is the best. So once you paint your frame(s) you want to allow them to dry overnight is best so its completely dry.  Then you'll want to pick out some coordinating ribbons and some Christmas Ornaments. Tie the ribbon on to the ornaments. You'll want the ribbon lengths at different lengths for each ornament. Again use an odd number of Ornaments as odd numbers are pleasing to the eye for most people. Once your frame is dry and you have your ribbons tied onto the ornaments you'll get your hot glue gun and glue the other end of the ribbons to the frame. Depending on your frame, some have that lil groove for the glass, if so, put just a dab of hot glue into it and try to tuck your ribbon into them after add some more but just a lil hot glue on the outside of the groove to help that ribbon hold. Once you got all the ornaments attached let it sit till the glue is dry.
Once its all dry if you want you can do a little to big bow for the front of the frame and then hot glue that to the top front.  Then Hang it on your wall, front door or give as a gift.
