tutorial:: pottery barn looking frame ornament

so i'm sure some of you already have the pottery barn ornaments that are silver and are monogrammed...if you are looking to replicate that, look somewhere else cause i don't have an engraver and i'm cheap remember?! but if you want a cute little knock off of a frame ornament then this is the tutorial for you!
first you'll need a little frame this one measures 4 x 3 1/2 you can go to Micheal's and find small frames or i'm sure you could find them in the frame isle anywhere.

next get your glue gun out, don't burn yourself (i usually do) and if you do burn yourself don't swear, cause you're going to have to repent for that one (i usually do). now glue gun your cute ribbon onto the back of the frame or if you are lucky like me and your little frame came with a matte (sp?), glue gun it to the back of that.

place it in your frame, put your picture in and...
put your back on and...

voila! presto! finito! that's it ...really...but it sure looks cute on your tree!

Thanks Vanessa.....I love this idea and guess what...I am cheap too! Hey Pottery Barn is the coolest but my boss doesn't think I should make bunches of money....go figure...he's a lawyer and he does! lol

Great idea! Sure beats the Pottery Barn price too. Guess one could always paint or stencil the child's name across the front as well.

By the way, I absolutely LOVE the buffet you redid. It is beautiful!

I love to get picture ornaments from the grandkids every year. I'm sending this idea over to their mommys. Thanks for the inspiration. Mimi

Clever. Last year I bought frames at the after Christmas sales and I want to make them for the grandparents every year. I like these frames better so I will now be using your way. Thanks for sharing.

Off to Michael's I go! I've been trying to think of something for my 80 year old grandma for her birthday this week... what a perfect quick idea! Just what I was looking for! I'm also working on a button tree.. these frames would look cute with buttons glued around the edge too!

Michael's always has such good deals. You have some great ideas there. Thanks for sharing and may you and yours have a wonderful Christmas and New Years.

An alphabet set of stamps is all you need to personalize this but it is already cute! Wish I'd found this BEFORE Christmas...but that is what is great about it - saving up ideas for next year and having the whole year to work on them!
