Antique Frame Turned Christmas Wreath


You may remember how I used an old antique wood frame for a wreath back
in the spring...

(You can see how I used it as my Spring Wreath: HERE)

I have since changed wreaths a few times, but I decided to revisit my antique frame
for upcoming Christmas.


I left the burlap ribbon on the frame that I had used in my spring wreath..
 just because I love the look of it and I thought it would go nicely with what I had in mind.

Now to sprucing it up...
I cut a piece of red mesh ribbon, and got a few random Christmas ornaments,
some craft wire, and wire cutters.



I just slipped the red mesh ribbon through the burlap ribbon that I already had tied on the frame.


Seriously, doesn't get much easier than that. :0)

Then I strung the ornaments onto the craft wire...



Held the wire up so the ornaments all went together in a bunch at the bottom.  Then cut the wire
so I had several inches of extra wire on each side of the bunch.


Gave the wire a twist to secure the ornaments...
Then just added it to my 'wreath' by securing it to the top with the wire.




So cute and so simple..
and I had everything on hand, so a no cost kind of project. Yay!

Could certainly add some greens, pinecones, etc.
The options go on and on.. and who knows I may change it up again.
But for now I am liking the simple look of it.
