American Crafter Round 2 Upcycled Sweater Wreath





Round 2 of American Crafter is this week and my project is a Upcycled Sweater Wreath. It was hard for me to figure out what to do at first. The theme is "Let it Snow" and where I'm at in California it is anything but winter. It feels like spring with 80 degree weather. But once I decided what i was going to do it was easy to get into the winter spirit!

  I decided to make a knot wreath because it's something so versatile and that anyone can do. I had a beautiful creamy white sweater that I was getting rid of and cut it into strips and knotted them around a wire hanger. I used scrap fabric to make rosettes and then embellished them with vintage buttons. I really love the way it turned out. It doesn't look like a project that didn't cost a cent! 

Voting starts Friday!!
