This is so easy – your kids can help. Just cut a sweater into 3-inch wide strips and wrap them around a craft wreath – secure the ends with pins and you're done.
I added a crocheted doily – you can find these at craft stores or resale shops.
I used a 12-inch straw craft wreath – available at craft stores for about $4.00.
No gluing or sewing here – I only used pins to keep things in place.
Collect a few old sweaters (you could also use scarves) and cut into 3-inch wide strips of desired length. Begin by tacking your first strip of sweater to the back of your wreath with a pin and wrap it around, securing the end with another pin.
Always begin and end a strip from the back of the wreath – keep going around until the wreath is covered.
This doily has a bit of a star shape – I attached it by pinning it down at each of its 8 points.
I'm hanging this one on my fake antlers.
