Is it hard for your to know how to decorate your door from Christmas until Spring? I think it is too! But now you and I can have a winter worthy front door! I have such a pretty, cozy and oh-so-easy way to embellish your door and give a warm welcome to all who visit! Let’s make a WINTER SWEATER WREATH! Even if you are not the least bit crafty you can make this. The wreath can be customized to work with the colors of your front door! You are only limited by the old sweaters you can find! Let’s get stared…
Did I already say how super easy this wreath is? It took me 20 minutes to make. How easy is that? Okay, let’s begin…
I got 5 different textured wooly sweaters from Goodwill.
3. To make the wreath you will need sweater strips, a straw wreath (to work with your size door) and u pins. You can get u pins in most craft stores. To finish the wreath you will need chunky yarn and frosted pinecones.
6 Wrap the strip around the wreath and tuck the end of the sweater strip into the last loop of the sweater. Fix with a u pin.
8. Cut a long length of yarn ( about 20 feet) from both skeins of yarn.
9. Tie one color of yarn to the back of the wreath and wind around wreath as pictured below. To finish the yarn winding, tie the end of the yarn to the the knot that was make at the beginning. Use that know to tie the second length of yarn and wind the yarn around the yarn. End by tying a knot to the one at the beginning.
If you run out of yarn before you get all the way around your wreath, tie off the yarn in the back of the wreath and continue on.
This addition is optional. To add the frosted pinecones to the wreath… Hot glue an 8 inch length of yarn to the top of the pinecone. Do this to as many pinecones as you like. Arrange them in a cascading style and fix to the underside of the wreath with a u pin. Cut of excess yarn.
