Christmas Ornament Valance

To make this quick and easy ornament valance for my kitchen window, I used a tension rod, 13 ornaments, and a variety of holiday ribbons.  I really like how the ball ornaments reflect light and color in the window.  Another fun take on this would be to use some of your favorite tree decorations to decorate your window.  Or… maybe ornaments that are the same theme as your kitchen (i.e. roosters, cooking, fruits, etc.)!
From the outside, visitors can also see your holiday decor too!  I took to decorating this window because I can see it everyday walking to our home.  Plus, being out in the middle of farm country can be very windy.  So, outside decorations have to be limited to things that won’t bang on the siding or blow away the next time the wind decides to gust through.
 

I cut the ribbon is pieces from 16″ to 22″ long.  Tied them in a loop, ran one end of the loop through the ornament top and secured it, and then ran the loop over my tension rod and then popped the ornament through the other end of the loop.  Very quick and easy!  Here is a close-up of ribbons attached to the tension rod.  Once I am done with these ornaments all I have to do is unloop everything.  Since there are no knots to undo everything will be ready to put back up next year. 

This project went very quickly (less than 45 minutes) and completely changed my kitchen from fall to winter.  Even better… Ms. Diva can’t investigate this decoration, LOL!

Thanks for taking the time to read this post. I love comments, and will return the favor! ~ Kimberlee
