This is just perfect. Y grand daughter said I have a wreath on my front door and her mom and dad have one on their door, and she wants one on her door now too. This would be a great one for her. It's very Santa-ish, it won't be heavy and I can make it up quickly.

What a great stash buster project! I'm always looking for little things I can make at the park with the kids!. Something small I can keep in my purse to pull out to keep me busy! It's such a great look. I know it would make a great gift but I don't know if I'd be able to give it up! Thanks for sharing this!
