Critters, Brandywine River Museum Christmas Ornaments


If you have ever visited the Brandywine River Museum in December, you know about the famous Brandywine River Museum Critters that have a regular place as ornaments on thousands of Christmas trees.

“For over three decades, visitors to A Brandywine Christmas have enjoyed enchanting, whimsical "critter" ornaments. Each year in March, the "glue-gun gang" of 120 volunteers begins crafting these delightful ornaments from natural materials. By the opening of A Brandywine Christmas, they will have made nearly 9,000 critters-both for display and for sale.”

Explore the links provided in this blog to learn about Critters and this wonderful museum which displays much of the art of the Wyeth family of artists.
