DIY Christmas Ornament Door Decor

This month’s theme for The Craft Challenge is Christmas. I’ve had this one planned for a month or so and was excited to get started on it. Shadow boxes are so neat, but I never could think of something to put in them. So, why not Christmas ornaments?

 

DIY Door Decor supplies

Door decor materials

  • Ribbon
  • Shadow box
  • Christmas ornaments

Note: I started with a cheap frame from the Dollar Store, but decided to switch to a much more stable shadow box from Michael’s.

Step 1: cut the ribbon

Cut a few strings of ribbon, preferably multiple colors, to different lengths.

Step 2: string the Christmas ornaments

Use the ribbon you just cut to string the Christmas ornaments.

Step 3: tie the ornaments to the shadow box

Pull apart the shadow box and tie the ornaments around the inner frame.

Tie them at different lengths to add some additional visual appeal.

When you put the box back together, be sure to move the tied ribbon as close together as possible so that they’re centered.

If they’re different lengths and you get diverse styles, you’ll end up with something like the above image.

When you’re finished, hang it on your door and enjoy the holidays!
