Yuletide Yarn Wreath



Skeins of yarn left over from previous projects are put to work once again. This project is great to do with and for children. It is such a cheery looking wreath.

Skeins of yarn left over from previous projects are put to work once again. This project is great to do with and for children. However, it is such a cheery looking wreath, you may want to keep it for yourself!

I started out by making the base. You could by a foam wreath form at a craft store - however - used a firm paper plate cut into a circle and wrapped with batting. I then cut out from the back of sweater, a wreath shape that was about 1-2" larger than the plate wreath shape.

I wrapped the sweater around the wreath frame and stitched it closed using a large sewing needle.
