Oh my! I am still bundling up to stay warm here in the Midwest! I am grateful I don’t have feet of snow to dig out of at the moment, but the cold is making me want to bundle up, turn on my fire, drink a yummy salted caramel hot cocoa and not leave my house! And since the holiday decor came down, my home is feeling barren and so is my front door. So today I decided to brave the cold to pick up a few supplies and whip up a really cute and Cozy Sweater Wreath to warm my home and my front door!
Also, I am pretending it is spring if you can’t tell! Yes it is cozy and warm, but I couldn’t resist using these beautiful spring colors to help bring a little warmth and hope of spring into my little neighborhood!
To create this Cozy Sweater Wreath, you will need:
- 3-6 sweaters depending on size, size of wreath and how full you want your wreath (I used 3)
- 24″ FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Wreath Form
- Straight Pins
- Scissors, both fabric and regular
- Colorful Paper
- Baker’s Twine or string
- Hot Glue Gun
I went into my local GoodWill and to my surprise it was a 50% off day! Woot woot! So I snagged three beautifully colored sweaters for about $6 and brought them home for this project! I couldn’t resist the bright and beautiful colors!
I began by cutting the arms off of all my sweaters. I also cut my wreath form in one place.
Then I slipped the sweater arms over the wreath form one at a time, alternating colors.
After the sweater arms were in place, I used a little hot glue and lots of pins to pin the wreath form back together.
Then I spread out the sweater on the form until it looked nice and balanced. I used a few pins to pin the sweater into place occasionally.
Then I cut out small triangles out of pretty card stock and hot glued them onto my baker’s twine to make a cute little banner. I attached the banner to the back of my wreath with straight pins and my wreath was complete!
