- Tension rod
- Thread (this silver thread is pretty!)
- Plastic holiday ornaments (these are cute, if you don't have a Canadian Tire nearby)
The idea is so simple and doesn't need much of a tutorial, but I outlined some steps.
How to hang ornaments in front of a window:
- Purchase an inexpensive tension rod to fit your window and place it inside your window frame
- Attach a length of thread to each ornaments, in all different lengths
- Tie a knot in the thread and set aside
- When all ornaments have been threaded, loop the thread over the rod and bring the ornament back through it
- Hang the ornaments at different height
I temporarily removed the screen, which I do in the winter anyway because I hate the look. I've never had a window in the kitchen before and I like to look at our view, which is such a novelty for me still. In the summer (aka "bug season") I gloomily pop the screen back in.
The result was really cheery. Although I initially intended on using glass ornaments (the glittering and gleaming was intense when the sun shone), I started dropping them left and right and quickly switched to plastic. With plastic, I could even safely open the window.
If you missed it, here's the info on my partnership with Canadian Tire. Along with four talented bloggers (including Jillian Harris!), I put together some neat ideas for holiday decorating, using items from the new CANVAS line from Canadian Tire.
