Recycled Wooly Wreath

Here’s another quick (and child proof) project for the holidays…mini wooly wreaths! They can be used as door hangers, package tie-ons, ornies for the tree, a little gift for a friendĀ ~ you decide!

Here’s one with a little red added…

Materials List: You’ll need recycled wool fabric (recycled/felted sweaters or rug hooking scraps) any color will do! I’m pretty traditional, so I like green and red. But, white would be dashing as would multi-colored!

Since my wreaths are meant to be small, I cut my fabric into 1-inch squares, but you can make the wreath any size you desire. You’ll also need wire, a workable/bendable gauge. Just cut a length of wire and poke it through the center of your cut fabric squares until you get the size (and density – no wire should be visible) you prefer. Twist the ends together. Add a strip of wool or ribbon and a length of gold thread for hanging. You can also embellish with beads, bobbles, glitter and more! You decide.

Let’s see…how many should I make???
