Easy DIY Wall Art

I finished decorating my tree weeks ago, but in my shopping adventures since then I found a couple extra ornaments that were too cute to leave behind. So instead of finding a spot for them on the tree,  I decided to do something else fun with them!
I found the ornaments at Canadian Tire, but I also saw the exact same deer one at Hudson's Bay later so it might be available at stores in the US too if they were manufactured overseas!

All you need to make one of these is a frame, an ornament, some wrapping paper (or maybe scrapbook paper) and some hot glue.

First thing I did was pop the glass out of the frame.

Then I wrapped the frame in the wrapping paper, making sure the front side was perfectly flat to avoid any wrinkles.

I used a set of pliers to remove the hook on the top of the ornament.

Then I glued him on.
Don't worry about messing up on this part, because it's easy to just re-wrap the frame! 
You can also really easily pull the ornament off and stick it onto a different pattern later.

Here's how it looks on the wall.

I decided to go with something a little different for the moose.

That's it!

  10. How creative! I love how you simply don't let any unused ornament go to waste. Recycling those as wall art is a great way to keep your home looking unique. I'm sure the bloggers who stumbled upon your post will excessively be making those for a long time. Hahaha! Thanks for sharing that wonderful idea, Ashton! Kudos and all the best to you! :)
