Easy Christmas Idea #7 ~Hang Pretty Ornaments

Today in #7 in my Easy Christmas Ideas series I am sharing a use for extra ornaments. 

Easy Christmas Ideas ~A series at Blue Clear Sky~

I will be sharing some simple ideas for Christmas decorating using items you may already have or that you can find inexpensively. My goal is to inspire readers looking for affordable and easy ways to decorate this Christmas. Your style may be different than mine, but many of the ideas can be altered to suit your taste.

 Easy Christmas Idea #7 ~Hang Pretty Ornaments 

  
Bring some Christmas cheer to a room by hanging pretty ornaments in a window, from a curtain rod, on a cabinet knob, or from a shelf. I used a sheer pale aqua wired ribbon, but any ribbon, twine or even fishing line would work. It is a great way to highlight special, vintage or just pretty ornaments (and it keeps delicate ornaments away from little fingers and our chocolate Lab's weapon of a wagging tail.) I bought these ornaments a couple of years ago at Canadian Tire, and used them in our masterbedroom window before, here.



We are having rain with overcast skies here for a few days that is making it difficult to get proper light in our rooms for photos. I hope you are having a great start to your week. I'm getting pretty excited with all the Christmas posts and photos that are beginning to appear on my favourite blogs!

  1. Love this idea, Elizabeth! I love the shape of those ornaments you have, too! I saw some pretty ones here, actually, at the Dollar Store! I'm gonna go back and see what they have. These would be pretty over my kitchen sink!
    Thank you for the idea, love.
    HUGS and blessings!
    Keep the ideas comin'!

  3. I love hanging ornaments like that! I did that on my front porch with great big ones (so you could see them from the street). Those look good hanging in your window.

  4. Love this idea! I tried something similar one year but of course, we actually had a extreme cold snap and my husband wanted to close the curtains (which we never do)... sadly he wasn't too gentle and a couple of ornaments didn't "make it".... next time I'll try using the shatter resistant variety!
