Use a Screen Door to Display Ornaments

If you are like me, then you probably have enough Christmas ornaments
 
to completely cover more than a couple trees!
 

 
 
I find it difficult to ignore Christmas Decorations at any Estate Sale or Thrift Shop....
 
especially the SHINY BRITE ornaments.
 
 
 
 
 
For our display we need a screen door or a repurposed wood frame with wire.

My door was from an old chicken coop and it measures 70'' x 27''.


 
You will also need some Glass Ball type ornaments, assorted shapes and sizes
 
and some wire ornament hooks....I also love to collect boxes of Ornament Hooks.

I place them under the tree like tiny packages.

 
 
 

 
Prop your screen up against a wall where you can work safely and not
 
accidently drop and break any glass balls.
 
If you have small children or animals you may want to hang your screen on the wall

and out of reach. Hang before you add your ornaments.
 
  I  planned to make a tree shape. I just estimate where I want to end and add my star.
 
 
 
 
 
Start at the base of the tree shape and work from bottom to top.

Taper in as you move upward.
 
This way the hooks are hidden by the next row up.
 
 

Almost done...keep going !
 
 



Here it is finished, I added a metal star that I found at the Dollar Tree.
 
 
NOTE : When you are ready to take down your display, you will remove the balls in reverse.
 
Start at the top and work down.
 

 
I think it makes a nice display!

 



 
 Thank you for stopping by today !
