    1. I love the sweater wreath idea. It is so true that after Christmas and until spring the door seems bleak. Thanks for such a great idea!

  1. So cute. Bet it would look good in the room with the sweater pillows. I have to make them soon. Just loved that popcorn stitch.

    Haven’t tagged you lately, so mentioning few subjects….Please keep our Nation on your pray list.

  2. This has to be one of the nicest winter wreaths I’ve ever seen. I just love it!!!!!! Love your color choice, Yvonne, and the pinecones are the perfect finishing touch!! Pat yourself on the back for a great idea!

  3. What an adorable wreath. I’ll be making the sweater wreath as soon as I make a trip to Goodwill. It’s perfect for winter, I just love it!

  4. My mom used to grab sweaters at yard sales and cut the sleeves off to make sweaters for her chihuahua, Prissy. She used pinking shears and cut arm holes, turned the cuff back making a turtleneck. By using pinking shears she was able to make vests which she took to a women’s shelter. I was going through my craft stuff trying to find something to hang on the door but nothing jumped out. Your wreath is great for this in between seasons. Time to hit up yard sales for sweaters!!

  5. I absolutely adore this sweater wreath! I have been contemplating something for the front door to carry me till closer to Valentine’s Day and you just solved my problem.
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Only you would have thought of this. How good is this? I think I will look thru our old wool socks to see what I can come up with.
    You are the greatest !!

  7. What a great idea and perfect for these winter months! Not to mention a perfect transition before putting up a Valentine wreath! Thanks for sharing…..I love it!

  8. I really LOVE this, I already have a beautiful custom wreath made for me by an Etsy artist, it is painted pinecone wreath from Maine and she made it with my colors, but I have to say I will need to find a place for this one too, as it is great!!
    thanks so much for an awesome and inexpensive idea!!

  9. I am making one of these this weekend. It’s perfect for the season and looks so easy. Your color choices look great!

  10. Thanks for the great idea! I bought scarves at the good will for a couple dollars each and made mine. Can’t get enough of your blog!

  11. I love the mix of sweaters and yarn. It makes me want to curl up in a blanket and drink a hot cup of coffee! Perfect winter wreath. Pinned!

  12. Very nice! I love the shades of gray and the pinecones. Came here from House of Hawthornes, she did a Valentine’s sweater wreath and linked here. Cute blog!

    Cheers,

  13. What an adorable, cozy wreath!it makes me warm just looking at it. I’m heading to Goodwill tomorrow! Thanks for the great idea!

  14. I love this idea. We made the wrapped yarn balls wreath before. Lots of work. This is much easier and what a memory item. I’d use some of my daughter’s toddler sweaters..too stained for hand me downs, but I could enjoy seeing the colors in this wreath. Thanks.

  15. Every year I wonder what to put on my door after Christmas in the winter. I love the yarn wreath and yarn ball wreath. One of these will be the plan this year! Thank you!

  16. I’ll be looking to score some old sweaters at yard sales so I can copy your wreath. The colors you picked are winter perfect. The wrapped yarn balls is even cuter! Keep the inspiration coming. I need it to live with hubby who wlll be getting walking boot Tuesday for stress fracture and turf toe. Ouch!

  17. I made this sweater wreath and I have to say that I think it looks just like yours!! I am so proud of myself and I am so thankful to have found your blog! It has given me so much inspiration to make my house more cozy and I want you to know how much I appreciate it!

  18. i love it – i have several wool sweaters that i felted that will work beautifully! thank you for the inspiration!

  19. Hi, Yvonne,
    Did you make two sizes of Pom-poms for the Anthropologie wreath? I know the Pom-Pom makers can come with two different sizes in one package and you showed two in your photo, so made me wonder if you’d used both. Thank you, Yvonne, for another fun wreath to DIY!

  20. I had been searching for a wreath to put out after the holidays and I hadn’t seen anything that was different, then your post showed up. I immediately went to Hobby Lobby and Goodwill to get the supplies. It was so easy to make and looks great on my porch.
    Thanks!!!!

  21. I LOVE this wreath! My daughter and I made several versions using thrifted winter scarves and they turned out beautifully. My only question is what did you attach to the wreath to hang it? We used over the door wreath hangers and that worked well, but we weren’t sure what we’d use if we wanted to hang them on an inside wall.

  22. Yvonne! Thank you so much for stopping by our Homestyle Gatherings link party. It was so fun to click on the link and find you!:) I absolutely love this craft project and would love to hop on over to your house and create one with you… But, since that would be a little difficult, I’ll instead be looking for wooly sweaters at all the thrift stores!;) Have a wonderful week!

  23. One of the prettiest wreaths you’ve made, in my opinion. 😉 Love the pinecones! Now to hit the thrift stores! 😉 Thanks for sharing at Homestyle Gathering! Hugs!

  24. Yvonne, you are so creative! How nice of you to share your wonderful creations with us! We are so blessed! I am going to make a sweater wreath for our doors! Love what you have done!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND BOBBY!

    1. Hi Ellen, I just keep wrapping my lengths of sweaters around the wreath and tuck under the ends. If the backs look messy you would cut out a ring of white felt an glue that to the back. Hope this helps.
