Tuesday's Trash to Treasure: Fall Wreath

Fall Wreath Tutorial
Reuse: Sweaters

*Sweaters (thicker wool works better)   [I purchased 5 from Salvation army for only $15]
*Scissors, Sewing Materials
*Metal hanger

_Start by cutting 3" circles from your sweaters. 

_Unbend your wire hanger. Poke through the centers of your sweater circles. Once you've made a wreath shape, twist the ends of the hanger together.

_Cut a 18"x6" piece of fabric. Fold fabric in half, right sides together. Sew around edges, pull fabric right side OUT, then sew shut. I sewed around the edges on the right side once it was sewn shut. Press accordion style. 
_Cut a 30"x4" (or use ribbon) piece of fabric. This will be the tail to your bow. Follow the same steps above, then cut a 3" piece off to use for the bow. 

_Hot glue/sew/pin the 3" piece around the smaller rectangle piece (bow). 

_Tie the tail of the bow onto the wreath. You can then pin the bow to the tail.
