Calling all vintage ornament lovers … this is for you! My Christmas ornament Valentine heart screen is a combo of some of my favorite things … Christmas, vintage ornaments and a one of a kind decoration! The best part is that it’s not permanent so when I’m done admiring my colorful Valentine heart, I can pack away the ornaments until next Christmas. I’m sharing my tips on how to create your own ornament heart.
Who said Christmas ornaments are just for Christmas? To know me is to know I have a weakness for vintage ornaments so when I had to pack them away, I was a bit sad.
I started thinking there must be a way to use I found this old screen at an estate sale years ago with the idea to make an ornament Christmas tree.
Years went by, and that ornament Christmas tree never happened but I still had the screen sitting in my basement gathering dust.

How to Make a Christmas Ornament Valentine Heart Screen
- Gather your favorite ornaments (I chose only ornaments with pink, red and silver)
- Start with the top center ornament
- Add a second ornament centered where you want the bottom of the heart to end
- Fill in the rest of the outline of the heart (see photo below)
- Starting from the bottom outline, keep adding ornaments
- As you get near the top, you will have to lift the upper outline ornaments to fit the lower ornaments underneath
- Fill in any gaps with smaller ornaments
Note: if you don’t have an old screen, you can find new screens here.
This ornament heart makes my heart go pitter patter and I love the idea of being able to keep my Christmas ornaments out long past Christmas!
It deserves all the heart eyes emojis!
I’m not a big Valentine’s Day decorator but I am loving this so much. It certainly helps to brighten up these dark, gray, winter days.
Old ornaments and pom pom garland makes everything better and my spring mantel is making these cold winter months more bearable.
Before you pack away those ornaments, consider making your own and if you’ve packed them away already it’s time to quickly run down to your basement or up into your attic and gather up all of your ornaments!
If you make one, please email a pic to me – I’d love to see!
