My front door was bare after I took down my Christmas decorations and I was ready to come up with a new wreath for winter. I had an old wreath form that I hadn’t used yet and was trying to think what I wanted to do with it. The wreath was a straw one, but had been in the basement for awhile and when I got it out I noticed it was starting to unravel.

What’s a Crafty Girl To Do?

I just wrapped it with clear tape and moved on with deciding what to do next. Lo and behold I found a sweater that had seen better days and made it into this terrific wreath that now hangs on my front door. I thought the acorns and pine sprigs made a great accent to the wreath and the warmth of the sweater makes the door feel very cozy for the winter.




The first step like any good DIY is pour yourself a glass a wine and assemble your supplies. I have a straw wreath form, an old sweater, safety pins and a scissors. This Sweater Wreath for your winter decor is an easy DIY that you can make with upcycled material.

Next lay your old stretched out sweater and cut about ten inches up from the bottom.

Pin the sweater around the wreath in four opposing sides.This Sweater Wreath for your winter decor is an easy DIY that you can make with upcycled material.

Proceed to pin the sweater around the wreath pulling it as tight or loose as you please. This all depends on how you want your wreath to look. The nice thing about this wreath is you can flip it over to check on how it’s looking. You also can check on where you need more pins.

When you feel you are done the back of the wreath should look like the below picture.This Sweater Wreath for your winter decor is an easy DIY that you can make with upcycled material.

The front should look similar to this. If you are not happy with it go ahead and re-pin. This project up to this point has taken me about 5 minutes.

That’s it everyone. Just take a ribbon and string it up. I wanted to add a little something to it so snipped a few sprigs off an old wreath and grabbed some pine cones from the clearance section at JoAnn Fabrics this morning.
