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?
Door decor materials
- 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!

Awesome! Hope he likes it and it makes the space a bit more festive.

Wonderful! I’d like to see a pic if he tries it!
I think it would look good with them spread out in the frame too. You bunch kind of remind me of jingle bells!
