I found it awhile ago and it has been repinned a lot. Unfortunately, the link on RedThreadDIY no longer works, but it was easy to make up as I went along. I had some stuff to donate to my local Goodwill Store, so while I was there I checked out the frame/art area. I wanted two semi-large frames so I could so some horizontal rows and vertical rows. I found these two 1980's beauties and new I could make them work:
The best news is they were $6.99 and 50% off. Of course they weighed 800lbs but I knew once I took the glass out that would take out most of the bulk. First I had to remove the paper backing and about 100 staples to get that masterpiece out:
I was left with two super light, slightly banged up gold frames:
Nothing a quick coat of red spray paint couldn't fix:
Some of the dark coloring/gold came through, but I liked it. It added some interest and kept the red form being too "fire engine". Next I stapled the ribbon strips into the crevice where the glass, mat, and cardboard were before:
Then stretched as tight as I could and attached to the other side. I then hung them on a blank wall I have in my living room using 3M picture hanging strips. They were super light so only needed one strip each:
Then cut some strips of holiday scrapbook paper, glued them on and sealed them in with Mod Podge.
Finally, I loaded up my frames:
What do you think? They were simple to make (just a little time consuming with all the staples and waiting for the paint to dry), easy to hang, and will be easy to store. They were also cheap - probably way under $10 each. It could be cute to change up the ribbon every year too! Once I get some more cards they might get a little crowded, so if I ever make new ones I might look for bigger frames. Now I just need to get my butt in gear and get our Christmas cards out!
