Holiday Ornament Display–Learn How to Make Your Own!

Thank you to The Home Depot for sponsoring this post.  

Last week I shared with you that The Home Depot has an upcoming workshop where you can learn how to make a Holiday Ornament Display.  If you like this project as much as I do, be sure to sign up for the workshop to learn how to make your own.

Holiday Ornament Display - DIHWorkshop with Home Depot

I’ve teamed up with some blogging friends for a Virtual Party where we will share our versions of this project and hopefully inspire you to make one for your home.  You’ll find links to all of the projects shared at the bottom of this post.

Are you ready to see my version?  My home has traditional colors and for Christmas I stick with the classic colors of red, green, gold, and silver in my décor so those were the colors that I chose for my version of this project.

The boards were painted the display with Rouge Chalky Finish paint from Americana Décor and protected  with wax that was buffed to a slight shine.

Tip:  Paint the boards before you assemble the project.  I had to use a small art brush to get the paint into the 1/4” spaces between each board which was bit tedious.

The balls are from The Home Depot and are attached to the board with hot glue.  The star is a Christmas tree topper.  I used wire cutters to cut off the part that attaches the topper to the tree.  Pinecones sprayed gold spray paint form the tree trunk.

To add an extra bit of interest to each corner, I added a stencil using metallic paint.

This was a fun project that this working girl was able to complete in just a few hours.  If you think that you don’t have time to do a project like this, you can squeeze this in.

Let’s see how I made this!

Procedure

Cut

Cut three 48” sections from the 1’x8”x12’ common board, two 48” sections from the 1”x6”x8’ common board, and two 30” sections fro the 1”x4”x6’ common board.How to Build a Holiday Ornament Display - A Tutorial -virginiasweetpea.com

Use a sanding block or orbital sander to sand the boards smooth.

Assemble the Boards

Lay all five of the 48” boards flat on a table interchanging between the 8” wide boards and the 6” wide boards.  Leave a 1/4” gap between all of the boards.

Tip:  Use a paint stick to keep the 1/4” gap uniform.

Attach Bracing

Center one 30” board horizontally across the five boards about 3 1/2” down from the top.  Use a carpenters square to make sure that the 48” boards and the 30” board are square before screwing into place.How to Build a Holiday Ornament Display - A Tutorial -virginiasweetpea.com

Secure the 30” board into place using two wood screws in each board.  (I had to drill a pilot hole first because the first screw that I inserted split the board slightly.)  The paint stick keeps the spacing even between the boards.

I am thrilled with this project and am glad that my living room is decorated for the season so that I will have plenty of time to enjoy it between now and Christmas.
