Another Christmas Quick and Easy

 

 
Do you need another quick and easy idea for Christmas ?  If you have a friend who is into dishes of any kind, this would be perfect and so easy!!
 
I bought a greenery wreath at HL (I usually buy these kind of things close to Christmas or after - if they have any left - and store them away for next year's projects!) and fluffed it out. 
 
Then I had this beautiful red transferware plate that says "Fountain Scenery" on the back.  I used one of the regular wire plate holders and put on the plate.  I took a light weight wire and wired it to the heavy wire frame of the wreath and just criss-crossed it across the back of the plate.  I attached it in several places where the plate hanger was on the back.
 
I added a red wired ribbon bow to the side and Presto - it's done.  Who wouldn't want to receive this as a gift?  Especially if it has a plate that is special to them.
 
Enjoy!!
 
Till next time, Judy

Oh Judy, you are so smart! What a great idea, I have some old transfer ware plates that have some chips and nicks and they would be perfect for your wonderful idea! Thanks so much for the inspiration, off to find some cheap, er, inexpensive wreaths! Deb

What a clever way to display a Christmas wreath and a pretty plate. And you could switch the plate out anytime. Love your blog Judy!

Love it! I have a collection of red transferware known as Memory Lane. I did a post about it awhile ago. I am keeping this project on my "to do" list!
