Upcycled Sweater Wreath 01:00
Cut Strips From Old Sweaters
Gather old and unwearable sweaters. Lay each one flat and cut vertical strips up the center (Image 1 + 2).
Pin the Sweater Strips in Place
Get out your foam wreath form (Image 1). Begin wrapping a sweater strip around a foam wreath and use a U-pin to keep it in place (Image 2). Keep wrapping it around the wreath and use a second U-pin to hold down the end (Image 3).
Repeat with all of your fabric until the wreath is covered, overlapping the strips to create a warm and cozy texture (Image 1 + 2).
Add Yarn to Your DIY Upcycled Sweater Wreath
Take out your yarn (Image 1). Tie yarn onto the wreath and wrap it around in a random pattern (Image 2). Repeat with the second color of yarn that matches your sweaters. Tie off and trim the excess (Image 3).
Tie on the Pom-Poms
Tie on yarn pom-poms to hang down into the center of the wreath (Image 1 + 2).
