I saw some framed ornaments a couple years ago, but the arrangement wasn’t the colors I wanted. I loved the idea though, so I sketched it in my planner because I didn’t happen to have my phone with me. I came across the sketch, and decided it was time to recreate it.

Easy and inexpensive, these Framed Ornaments make great Christmas decor. They can be made in any color.

The original piece had sheet music as the background paper, but I didn’t have any on hand, so I used a book page. You can use whatever you like.

Supplies for framed ornaments:

-Picture frame
-Book page or scrapbook paper
Christmas ornaments
Hot glue gun and glue sticks


Cut your paper to fit inside your frame. Place it in, and put the frame backing in place.

How to make framed ornaments for Christmas decorations

Take your ornaments of choice and thread a ribbon through the loop on top. (Make sure your ribbon is long enough that both ends extend at least an inch and a half past the top of the frame.) I used white, but you can use whatever color you want. Secure the ribbon with a little glue just above the metal loop.

Step by step instructions for easy Christmas decorations.

After all three ornaments are threaded with ribbon, arrange them on the front so they hang at varying heights. Hold the ribbons in place, flip the frame over, and hot glue the ribbons to the back of the frame.

Now just flip your frame back around and display anywhere you like. My frame has a stand, so I sat mine on a shelf. You could hang yours if you prefer.
