Framed Key Decor...

Today was one of those days that I started switching around my decorations...it must be spring fever! 
Then I got the idea to make this.

I really love how it turned out & I decided to hang it on the hall tree in my entry way. 
It was a nice change from the wreath I usually hang there.

I love using stuff that I already have around the house to change things up a bit...

All I did to make this was:
 -Take a frame & remove the glass front.
-Line the frame with scrapbook paper of your choice.

-Then I took this key that I got from Hobby Lobby a while ago & tied a long piece of  ribbon to the top of it.
-Then I wrapped it around the top of the frame & replaced the backing to the frame.
-Hang it from the hook with the ribbon & tie a bow.
 I didn't even glue the key to the paper so I can switch the key & the paper out for other holidays if I decide too!

This spring fever has me wanting to rearrange everything...I just wish it could motivate me to clean out a few closets instead!

  1. I love it!! As I think I've mentioned before, we have the same type of entry way, where the stairs are off to the right. I wish I could find a hutch type thing like you have to add to mine. For now, I am going to go crazy remove a mirror and add a COAT RACK!! (a cool Hobby Lobby find!)...

    Love the key and the entire craft idea!
