It seems like every department store I’ve gone to this year has had great displays of hanging ornaments. I really wanted to make one to decorate a blank wall in our dining room. I bought a bunch of silver ornaments from the dollar store and some cheap snowflake ornaments from Target to start. Finally I purchased a bunch of plain glass ornaments from Joann’s and used this tutorial to make ornaments that are glittered on the inside. I used Martha Stewart fine glitter in turquoise and green, which I thought made a fun color scheme.
My friend Sara took the middle two pictures. To hang these up I used Command Strips (LOVE them) and spaced them on the ceiling every 3 inches. I hung the ornaments from ribbons in pairs to keep the pattern symmetrical, with the exception of the middle ornament.
Although it didn’t exactly follow my original plan, I think it turned out great. I really love the idea of using ornaments in places other than the Christmas tree. Where else do you use ornaments in your holiday decorating?
