12 Days of Christmas Day 1: Christmas Ornament Frame Door Wreath

Welcome to the First Day of Christmas! 

Today on the First Day of Christmas, I am showing off the wreath my sister and I made.
It's not your traditional wreath, no mam (or sir).
But its so much fun!

Our inspiration was from

First we went out and got a cheap frame.

It's an 11 x 14. We purchased it at Walmart. It was originally $5 but this one was on clearance because its corner was coming apart.

Then we headed to the Dollar Tree and purchased ribbon, ornaments and bells.

First, we fixed the corner by hot gluing and pushing the corners back together. Good as new, can't even tell.

Take the glass out, and the card board backing out of the frame.

For the paint, we combined bright red, wine and a little white colors together.
Then applied our 1st coat.

Then a second and third. We didn't sand it down so we had some streakage. Its all good, this frame was nice and cheap.

After the third coat dried we started lightly sanding it, using a fine grit.

Then make your bow. She made a four loop bow.
Then add we added the bells on the top of it.  It already had a foil looking leaf and berry attachment and it looked great added on top of the bow.

Then using a sheer ribbon, we added the ornaments. These are plastic, as we don't want them to break when the door shuts. I just love the design on these.

We attached the ribbon to the back of the frame using a glue gun.

And then added the joy, which was an ornament as well.

We actually just looped it over the longest hanging bell.

And waa-la its done. I love how it looks. This one is my sister's. I'll post my wreath in a few days.

Thanks so much for tuning in, and I hope to see you every day for the next 11 more days of Christmas.

Until Next time...
Blissful and Domestic

    This would be great for a frame where someone had broken the glass, maybe by leaning on it too heavily whilst trying to fix hanging wire to the back. Not that I can imagine anyone being quite that silly of course!
