I've made and received a lot of plushies this year in Craftster swaps, and this week I had a brainstorm about what to do with some of them:  BEHOLD, the Happy Plushie Wreath!!



I got everything but the plushies at Wal-Mart
--artificial wreath
--sparkly ribbon
--sparkly red (plastic) ornaments

First I wrapped the wreath with the ribbon, then I tied the plushies and ornaments to the wreath.  Yes, I TIED them with green string, rather than using glue, so I could edit anything I wanted to. (I sewed the string through the backs of the plushies so it wouldn't show on the front.)

I will hang this on the inside of our front door so we can enjoy it all season long (there is a more "traditional" wreath on the outside of the door so visitors think we're normal).

ditto on what the three craftsters ahead of me said--
To do:
1-shamelessly steal own version--check!
2-front door--enter a happy home!--check!
3-make plusies, get plushies--check!

I love this wreath. Year after year it will remind you of the goodies that were created just for you by unsuperb and your other partners. I could see doing a version every year. you KNOW how those stuffies multiply Cheesy

everything about this is so cheery--the good thoughts and good craftings.
