I actually saw someone using a stocking in September so I guess you really could do this anytime - after all it is Disney!

The reason we ask is that we're already going little gifts every day for the stateroom host/hostess and a end-of-cruise gift for the server team, so if we also have to turn around and make a couple hundred gifts for DIS'ers that could be alot of stuff we have to get to the ship!!
Definitely check your thread, but honestly you can do it as small or as large as you want. Some folks on our cruise gave smaller gifts like little round magnets, stickers or candy and some really put together amazing handmade gifts. All were appreciated - it is so worth it to participate in - even if you can only do something small. I think our cruise had over 50 people participating and we had some who did all cabins, some only did half - it worked out fine.

I think we will have to cruise a few more times now to get good use out of it!

I'm trying to put together my wreath...I have a question....how did you do it? Do you glue the Mickey's down to circle (if so what did you use...it had to be something light) or I thought maybe they were glued one by one on top of each other? And, then it looks like the whole thing was laminated? Also, I think I counted about 11 or 12 Mickeys of each of the 3 shades of green? Is that correct? Thanks for your help!

Good Question! I went and got HD ones...and now have those arranged...but, looking back at the picture..SILLYANDI's look bigger than mine...It was so easy to use the HD ones...I too thought about cutting out 30something of heads...but, decided HD would be much quicker...I should probably find out the size of the "porthole" ...to make sure the wreath will be the right size.

I was going back through my F/E gifts and thought I would mention a pretty neat idea. One of the folks on our cruise gave everyone a post card before Castaway Cay day PLUS they put one in their with their address and a stamp - this way when you get home or from Castaway you can send them a postcard - what a neat thing to receive to extend the fun!

Sorry I haven't been checking in here... I used the Home Depot mickey heads- I used all 3 of the green colors they had. I think I used 10-12 each color.

I peeled them off the backing then ran them through my xyron machine (it's a scrapbooking tool that makes a sticker out of anything). I used a dinner plate as my center then placed the mickey heads down in layers, overlapping as I went. I pulled the whole thing off the plate and laminated it. I cut the "berries" using a scrapbooking punch.

Thanks for getting back to us! Xyron machine...never heard of that..but, how neat! I went to HD and got about 11 of each green Mickey head...peeled them off..and began glueing..however, I need a couple more of each color...it looks like I've somehow made it fuller? I discovered the plate as the center after getting it 1/2 glued around when I realized I was getting a little off track....It's a great idea....and, I can't wait to get back to it after another trip to HD!

About 120 cabins DID individual FE gifts on the Sept 1st 5 night double dip! It was the most amazing thing! Our swag filled a huge sandpail full to the top and brimming over - It was a lot of work but it was also SO MUCH FUN!

I made hand made gifts, as did quite a few others - don't know about them, but I spent about 40-50 hours on them in the months before the cruise. Then, it took us about 3 hours to deliver them all, but even that was fun. I felt like Santa Claus making the rounds,

Mine curved a little on the left side too, gives it character!
