A  years ago few we spent a wonderful Christmas at Disneyworld. To commemorate our trip I wanted to have a seasonal decoration we could use every year and saw a wreath online from the Disney store that I loved but at $35 plus shipping I felt I could do better myself.
Using a fake evergreen wreath (leftover from last year), wired pine garland (also on hand) and two candle wreaths ($1 each) I made my own.



The candle wreaths came with some hideous fake fruit that I removed and discarded then used the garland to secure the candle wreaths as ears. Extra garland was used to fluff out the wreath and ears and some picture hanging wire was strung across the back of the center wreath to hang it. A bow made out of salvaged ribbon added a bit of color. We have used it 3 years now and it still is a great reminder of our trip.

What I great idea! I've seen the ones they offer online, but have never gotten one because I didn't want to pay that much for a wreath!  I may "borrow" your idea - this is great!

Your Wreath is fantastic, I am sure several people are going to borrow your idea!  I went to Disneyland a couple years ago during the Holiday Season for my Honeymoon and I remember wanting these wreaths!  I have always pondered about trying to make one of the ornament versions, but not adventurous enough.  Cheesy

This is a really cute wreath!! I want to try it.  I'll bet there is some wire ribbon out there that has Disney characters that would make a great bow.  Great job!
