I hung this frame (thrift store find!) on my door in December with colorful ornaments hanging from the center with ribbon (much like this one only with different colors) and I LOVED it! it was so festive and fun. Once the Christmas decor came down, I left the frame there because I thought it was so lovely and so versatile for other holidays!
For Valentine’s Day I wanted to do something very simple, easy and cheap. Valentine’s decor doesn’t stay up very long so I don’t want to a: invest much money into it, or b: fall in love with it only to have to take it down (that’s pretty much what happened with the ornament version in December!).
Another thing I enjoyed about this version was that my daughter was totally involved in picking out the baubles to hang and putting it all together! It was a fun activity to do together, and she actually ADORES seeing the front door everyday!
Cost: about $1.25
Tie the twine to each bracelet and snip the little tail just above the knot. Make sure to have several inches of twine for each bracelet. You’ll adjust the various lengths later.
This is the quick and dirty way…it’s not pretty, but no one sees the back! I tied each bauble at different lengths to the little metal part on the back of the frame. I also attached some using duct tape so they would be a bit spread out across the frame. Then I flipped it over and called it a day!
(confession: this is NOT my favorite thing. Once I’d finished it and took a good look at it, I realized it didn’t turn out at all the way I’d pictured it. HOWEVER, my little lady had enjoyed working on the project and kept running to open the door to look at it again…in the end I decided that her joy of it mattered more to me than the part where it’s not a glorious end product. She felt proud of it, and that is so important to me!)
