Easy Peasy Hanging Ornament Display

I've been all about the super easy projects lately. And when I happened upon this vintage frame at a craft sale, I snatched it up!! I had no idea where it would end up but knew it wouldn't go to waste...

I love the intricate details on the frame and the color was perfect just the way it was, so all I did was give it a little wipe down and it was ready to rock n' roll! I'll probably use it in various ways throughout the year, and since the holiday season was here, I decided it needed a little bit of bling!

The hanging wire that was on the back was in rough shape so I cut it off and strung a very thin wire a little over 3/4 of the height of the frame opening. 

I finished it off with a small collection of ornaments in a variety of colors that coordinate with my holiday decor...and tada! A pretty little statement piece on the side table in our living room!

 You could easily do this with any old frame, big or small!

This is so simple, yet so lovely. We have a few frames like this that have been collecting dust in our basement...and I'm thinking it's time to dust them off. Beautiful idea!
