Decking the Walls, um, I Mean Doors!!

I decided to attempt a version of this frame wreath project that I found via Pinterest:

I don't plan on putting up a tree this year because I just don't have the energy or Christmas spirit to do it. So, in lieu of that, I have been creating small little vignettes and projects to decorate our home for the holidays.

My kitchen, which is still a major work in progress, is decorated in a black, white, and red color scheme so I decided to take the above picture and recreate it in colors that would compliment my kitchen decor. I hung it on the inside of my back door which separates my kitchen area from my dining area. Here's my version:

This was so easy to do! I already had everything I needed on hand except for the black and white gingham ribbon which I found at Wal Mart for less than two dollars. All I did was take an old picture frame that had no glass, spray paint it with some red paint and attached some small ornaments to the frame with ribbon and hot glue. I used epsom salt to give the ornaments some texture.

I am pleased with how this turned out! Just the right touch of Christmas for my kitchen! I'm joining some of my favorite linky parties listed at the bottom of my blog. Please be sure to check them out. There's always tons of inspiration to be found!

Until next time. . .
