Framed Christmas Wreath

I am personally a big fan of fun wreaths. I love having a “traditional” seasonal wreath on my front door but the wreaths I like to put out are usually less than traditional. I love my Christmas wreath but I wanted to move that one inside for my standing wreath hanger. So that meant I needed a new wreath on my door and well lets face it, I never need an excuse for a project!

I was inspired by the wreath from Blue Cricket Design. When I saw the frame she used I knew I had one just like it sitting in my garage. And so the wheels started turning.

I wanted the frame to really pop off my door so I painted the frame a bright Christmas red! What else?

The ornaments came from Michael’s and I got two different sizes. I kept the color scheme simple; red, green, and white. I used fun polka dot ribbon to attach the ornaments to the frame. Then I finished everything off with a satin green bow.

I absolutely LOVE it! It’s fun an funky but so festive and Christmasy too!

Time is speeding quickly towards Christmas and it’s time to try and squeeze in my last projects of the season! Can’t believe how quickly the holiday season has flown by!!!

Linking up to these great link parties!!!

  1. Love it! I’ve been wanting to do a “weather proof”/ “water proof” wreath for our front door and I love, love, love yours! The bright red frame is gorgeous and you could change up the ornaments each year if you liked. I think I might just be making one tomorrow! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love it! It is such a nice change from the traditional evergreen wreath!

  3. How clever is that? So clever I want to steal the idea for myself… maybe not for Christmas but look out Valentine’s Day! Love your blog and glad I found it today.

  4. That is so awesome. That red is gorgeous. I would love it if you would link this fabulous post to our What’s It Wednesday linky party. Hope you can join us.

  5. I did this too but I wanted to ask a question- did you have to adhere it to the door somehow, mine kept banging against the door every time it was opened and closed. I used those command strips for mine- did you use anything?

    • have you tried using felt dots around the back? it might still bang, but at least it won’t be as loud.

    • Anonymous says:

      used felt pads, banging isn’t as bad, but it gets out of balance every time the door is opened.

    • Anonymous says:

      used the felt pads and that helped with the banging.
      every time door is opened, it moves and gets off balance
      any suggestions?

    • What helped mine stay balanced was my door wreath hook is positioned in the middle of the polkadot ribbons. So there is ribbon on both sides of the wreath hanger. Mine will bang a little (not much though) and it stays pretty well balanced.

  6. This is simply stunning! Thank you for sharing and I think I have found my new Christmas wreath, I am in need of a new one. 🙂

  7. How did you get the frame to hang evenly on the hook without falling off or “tilting”??

  8. I love the way your ribbons are attached to the christmas balls. Could you tell me how you got them to attach so nicely? Thanks!

  9. I love your frame wreath. I linked to your post on my blog. I hope that is OK!

  10. How did you tie the ornaments to the frame?

  11. How big is the picture frame?

  12. Where can you get frames like that. I’ve been looking all over and can’t find any. Any ideas would help. Thanks!

  13. I made this and love it, but instead of balls I used bells from the dollar store, I got pretty red and burnt brass ones. Turned out beautiful

  14. I saw this on Pinterest and loved it so much I made it! Thanks girl! I am your newest follower- come see mine spin and shout on it! http://fey-next2heaven.blogspot.com/2012/12/next-pinterest-project-came-from-both.html

  15. LOVE this!!!

  16. Love this idea! Birds are always trying to nest and/or pick the berries off my front door wreath! This will look great on my black door! Just the “Pop” of color it needs!

  17. Can you tell me how you attached the ribbons to the frame?

  18. +I’m a new follower and I really like the ideas you have come up with…lots of inspiration for sure! I live in Las Vegas, NV – we get a horrible winds at time, I’m going to create the frame art for my double front door – I found this tacky almost like putty stuff, and that has helped me keep things in place on the front door. I found it at the dollar store. Thanks for all the idea!

    • Is it earthquake putty? I love that stuff! Being from California I grew up with the stuff but now living away from Cali it’s hard to find! So I have a stock pile I use for all kinds of decor dilemmas!

        Yes, mine is so old you can’t read the package, but living in this state, it works – I could not add the pretty bulbs unless they are of non breaking material, but there is a lot of things I can use. I found frames at the Goodwill clearance center, like a dime a piece – crafters paradise. Thanks for the awesome ideas – making all my holiday gifts this year!

  19. I just found your blog and love it. I plan on making these for Christmas gifts for my family and friends. What types of paint did you use on the frames?

  20. Love this idea Great gifts to give !! But was wondering did you leave the glass in? Thanks !!

  21. This is such a great idea! It’s a nice alternative to a traditional wreath yet still festive. I can’t wait to try it.

  22. This is a great idea. It’s something different than a regular wreath yet has great colors for the holiday season. I am excited to give this a try.

  23. I love this idea! I can’t wait to try it. I’ve been looking for an old frame to spray paint but haven’t had any luck. Any ideas on an alternative that’s similar?

  24. Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally
    overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!
