Thanks!


They came from Hobby Lobby. The large metal wreath frame is 20" and the ears are the 12" ones because I found out that Mickey's ears are 3/5 the size of his head, no matter what size his head is.

The ears are attached to the head with green floral wire.

I used 2 sets of candy corn lights and 1 set of orange lights. I plan on keeping it up until right after Thanksgiving. The colors are Fall colors.

I have another set of the frames that I could use to do one for Christmas with blue lights that match our exterior house lights.

My family drove me nuts, and then I got stuck in traffic
Washed my hair and wham, several ideas hit me all at once!

super cute !

I've tried somthing similar. I've purchased from K-mart the extra large wire formed spider web and 2 of the smalls.

I used zip ties to attach the "ear" and wrapped orange lights around the border.
