Framed Ornaments...

When people use the term "framed ornaments", they are usually referring to Christmas tree ornaments that are miniature picture frames you can hang on your Christmas tree. Here are some "framed ornaments" with a twist. This is a way to create a seasonal decoration with items you may already have on hand. I generally have a few extra Christmas ornaments in my boxes, or I can always put aside a few that I usually reserve for the tree. In any case, you start with a few ornaments...

Next, grab some Christmas ribbon (or jute) and string the ornaments onto the ribbon. Tie a bow in the ribbon and hang it from a little nail on your wall. Then grab a picture frame and "frame" the ornaments by surrounding the ornaments and hanging the frame to the wall.

That's it! Could it be any easier?
