How to make an Upcycled Christmas Wreath

Now that we’re all locked down again, it’s a good time to start getting ready for a home-made crafty Christmas… this easy recycled wreath is a good place to start.

This easy to make wreath is made from old jumpers, tee shirts or sweatshirts, and a wire coat hanger. It can then be decorated with pompoms, bells, buttons, shiny-wrapped sweets, or just left plain.

After lots of experimenting, we have found that old acrylic jumpers work best. You can easily cut them by hand –  no need to measure – and they don’t fray too much.  If you don’t have any suitable jumpers in the back of your wardrobe, it’s another  good reason to visit your local charity shop.
