Upcycled Sweater Wreath

I recently posted a tutorial on how to use old sweaters to make cute vases. This time I took an old sweater and used it to decorate a wreath. I cut the sleeves off the sweater and cut open the seam. Then I wrapped it around a straw wreath base and glued it on with hot glue.

You may be left with some unfinished edges but you can cover those up with embellishments.

I cut flowers and leaves out of felt and glued them on and then I pinned some tulle and pearl beads to fill in the gaps.

Ta da! A pretty winter sweater wreath!
