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 Christmas wreath is a good place to start.
This year, more than ever, the Christmas wreath seems to be offer a cheery greeting to everyone who walks by. We wish you a merry Christmas and a completely NEW year. You can make this wreath right now, today, with just a few things in the house. It’s perfect for people who are staying indoors – for whatever reason, too.
This easy to make Christmas 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.
