Homemade Christmas Wreath – how to make an upcycled Christmas wreath

13th December 2016

A home-made Christmas wreath is a lovely thing to make at this time of the year

–  either for your own front door or to give as a gift.

OUR UPCYCLED CHRISTMAS WREATH IS RECRAFTED FROM OLD JUMPERS, TEE-SHIRTS, SWEATSHIRTS AND A COAT HANGER. WE LIKE THEM DECORATED WITH POMPOMS, BELLS, BUTTONS AND SHINY-WRAPPED SWEETS BUT YOU COULD ALSO LEAVE THEM 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.
