How to Make a Shabby Chic Christmas Window Frame

You will Need:
both small and big hanging hooks
tea lights
basic home tools
Adorn with antique Christmas tree ornaments and tea candles, this repurposed window frame meets modern eco-chic style with traditional Christmas cheer. The DIY decoration would fit perfectly at a farm-to-table restaurant or on the mantle above your fireplace at home.

Pin It

If you enjoy coming to you most likely also enjoy antiquing. This window frame you can find at most antique shops and even yard sales. Many times you'll find window frames in someone's trash who recently replaced their  windows.

Some window frames come with glass still in them, some do not. This window did not have the glass, but if your's does the glass is most likely being held into place with a small bendable piece of steel. All you will need is a thin flat head screw driver to bend the piece back far enough to lift the glass out (just like the back of a picture frame). If your window does not have that, cover your window with a blanket and use a hammer to break the glass out.

Before you set your hooks into place, lay your window down flat and arrange the way you want your ornaments and tea lights to be displayed. That way you know where to place your hooks.
Now your ready to screw in your hooks. Hammer a tiny nail where you want the hook to go, just to get a small hole started for the hook.
Screw in your hooks. Now use your fishing line to hang your ornaments off your tiny hooks. ( They look like their floating since you used fishing line ) I placed two bigger hooks on the top of my window frame to tie my twine too, for hanging. Once my window frame is up I then place my tea lights in my empty squares.
Now I know this is a Christmas decoration but really this great antique can be used to display anything, Jewelry, family photos, art, or just candles, you can even paint the window. Remember... there are no rules!
