Front Door Decor
Here was the inspiration:
Here was my version:
To make mine, I found the frame at Joann. I spray painted it red. I purchased the ornaments from Target for $5. They are plastic so they won't break. I tied ribbon that I had to each ornament and then tied all the ornaments together.
I first hung the greens on the wreath hanger, then I hung the ornaments, tied the bow to cover the loop of ribbon and then hung the red frame over the top of it all. I think it turned out cute.
"JOY" silver hanging letters
This project was inspired by Grace. I was hoping to use my gold "O" from Hobby Lobby that I had for Halloween for "BOO" hanging on my IKEA frames, and spell "JOY" for the holidays. Unfortunately, Hobby Lobby was all out of "Y's." Being the crafter at 7 years old that she is, Grace saw the chipboard letters hanging in the wood aisle and told me I should make my own. So that's what we did.
I purchased the letters for $.99 each, bought a silver can of spray paint for $5 and found the snowflake decals in the holiday section for $2.00. I put about three layers of spray paint on each letter. Don't look too closely at the "Y." The sticker didn't come off too well and the spray paint didn't hide it like I thought it would.
After I had the letters all painted, I then hot glued the snowflake decals and then hot glued a strip of ribbon to the back. I tied the strip of ribbon to the bow. After doing this project, I'm not sure the gold letters would have worked with the "J" and the "Y" without hot-gluing the ribbon on the back. So, in the end, Grace's problem solving worked :)
