I'm always scared to put my favorite ornaments on my Christmas tree--what if they get broken? Most of my ornaments are easily replaceable, but I have a few that are dear to me. I went to a local shop last Saturday (Harmony Shop) and saw this idea for displaying antique ornaments.

The shop owner suspended antique and unique ornaments on bits of vintage ribbon and trim. What a great way to use those laces and trims that you keep just in case. She hung the ornaments on a larger fabric swag and placed them in the window. I can't wait to recreate this idea in my home.
