Repurposed Sweater Wreath

This post is sponsored by and as part of the MakeItFunTeam.

200BloggerButton_zps39ffccc9 Changing out wreaths for every season or Holiday is always so much fun and Christmas/Winter is no exception.  Sometimes I like to create a wreath for Christmas that I can leave up for a few months.  As part of this month’s Make It:Fun Challenge I received a box FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam in some amazing shapes and a jar of Diamond Dust™ Glitter.  The glitter is absolutely amazing and looks exactly like fresh snow.  I made a few things from this box of goodies but for this post I wanted to share my repurposed sweater and vintage ice skates wreath.


Make It: Fun® Foam Wreath ~ 1 15/16 x 15 11/16 x 1 7/8 inches

Diamond Dust™ Glitter

Mod Podge


3 yards of ribbon for bow

Trim of choice {optional}

Ice Skates {optional}

Straight pins

1.  Cut the sleeves off the sweater.

2.  Cut the seam to open the sleeve into one flat piece.

3.  Wrap sleeve around your foam wreath inserting pins into the back of the wreath to hold the sweater in place.  

4.  Attach second sleeve cuff-to-cuff with the first sleeve.

5.  Hot glue trim of choice {I had some snowflake tree trim left from years ago that I used but you could use any snowflakes or Christmasy trim of your choice}.

6.  Attach ribbon to top center of wreath.  

7.  Apply Mod Podge to area of the skates that you would like to have the look of ice/snow.  Sprinkle Diamond Dust™ Glitter onto the Mod Podge while it is still wet.

8.  One your skates are dry, tie the laces together staggering the lengths of the skates.

9.  Hang your wreath with skates.  

I love being part of the MakeItFunTeam team and sharing a new project every month ~ last month I made a Faux Pallet (it looks exactly like a pallet but weighs next to nothing) and in October I made a light up Jack ‘o Lantern with a burlap and Decorative Mesh tiara.
