Yesterday, I shared a small Holiday Home Tour with all of you and one thing I noticed was that my poor door was lacking Christmas decor this year. FAIL! How could I go through the Holidays without a wreath of some sort? So yesterday I whipped up this quick DIY Ornament Door Decoration using ornaments and ribbon from the dollar store and some fishing line and extra ribbon I had laying around.
Do you ever have projects that turn out nothing like you originally planned? Well, this was one. My original plan was to do a different take on an ornament wreath but it was a total fail and while playing around with some fishing line and ornaments I discovered that I could make these little ornament clusters! I instantly fell in love with how they looked so I decided to make an unconventional ornament door decoration.
This was such an easy project, probably took me 30 minutes and it gave my sad little door some holiday flair.
-21 Ornaments ( I used 2 packs from the Dollar Tree)
– Fishing Line
– 1″ Ribbon ( I also bought this at the Dollar Tree)
– 4″ Ribbon for Bow
String 7 ornaments onto the fishing line.
Then, holding the ends of the strings slowly bring them together and tie a knot. The ornaments will naturally fall into place.
Secure the fishing line with 3-4 knots and cut the extra strings.
Tie a piece of ribbon onto each of the clusters. I did this by wrapping it around one ornament and tying a knot.
Then, stagger the pieces of ribbon and tie them in a knot. Hang them on the door and cover with a piece of ribbon.
TIP: Here is my little secret to getting my perfect bow, I actually taped down the 4 corners of the bow onto the door so it wouldn’t move :)
So what do you think? Was it a good thing my first project was a total fail?
