Framed Vintage Ornaments

 Here's a fun way to show off those vintage ornaments you've been collecting....
These I scored at a garage sale this summer...they were at a bottom of a box full of Christmas things

The frame I got for free from a friend...

It was gold and fairly beat-up...The beat up part I didn't mind...the gold had to go.  :)
So the first thing I did, was give it a light coat of spray paint... letting just a little bit of that gold show through.

I then added the pink dots using acrylic paint and the eraser end of a pencil.  I tied the bow and glued it to the top and then stared stringing the ornaments, using different colored ribbon.

The little pinwheels I made out of paper gluing a vintage button to the centers.

Don't you just love this blue one?

Anyway that's framed vintage ornaments...What do you think...How do you plan on displaying yous???  
I would love to know!!!
As usual I will be linking up to many of the party's on my side check them out!!

Happy Holidays!
