Window Ornament Holder
Every time we move to a new home I have to re-evaluate my decor. Some decor items just don’t fit in every home we live in. Some homes have more wall space than others and some homes have more square footage than others. So I constantly have an “extra decor” box in my garage. They are things that I want to keep but just don’t have room for, but I may at the next house. Ah the military life!
When we moved into this home I ended up weeding out this old wooden window frame. I wasn’t LOVING it anymore so it didn’t make the cut!
While unloading my Christmas decorations I realized that I didn’t have as much as I thought I did! Not wanting to go out and spend a ton of money on decorations this time of year, I started shopping my garage. When I spotted the window I knew that it was getting a holiday makeover!!! I stripped off the ivy and hooks and starting painting.
I went to my go to color….RED! All the walls in our home are white and because it’s a brand new home that we will have to turn back over in a couple years, we are too afraid to paint! So I am a little more willing to add some color! Before the paint got too dry I took painters tape and removed patches of the paint here and there.
As you can see, next I added some white hooks to each slat. I quickly realized a couple of the slats were loose and as I added the hooks they became completely detached. So out came the good ole Gorilla Glue and clamps!
Then all I had to was pop it on top of the mantle and put the ornaments on.
I got all of the ornaments at Michael’s on sale!
I really like the combination of the distressed window and the shinny, sparkly ornaments!
And there is a shot of my whole mantle. I will be adding a couple more elements to it before too long, but I have to say I am VERY happy with how my window ornament holder turned out!!!
