When I take down my Christmas wreath, I'm left with nothing for my door until spring. I decided to remedy that this year by making a white winter wreath. White always seems appropriate for the new year- a fresh clean start.
I made a wreath form with a pool noodle. I bought several during the summer to make wreaths and for a couple of other projects. All you have to do is tape the ends together.
I took my thrift store sweater that I used for vases and cut a strip off the bottom. I actually cut the band off first, then cut a strip.
Next I took the strip and pinned around the wreath. I then glued it together with hot glue. It makes a seam around the back, but it's on the back so it doesn't show.
After I covered the form, I took some felt and fleece from my stash and made flowers. I also made a flower from a stip of the sweater. I embellished the flower centers with some acrylic stones, buttons, and brads.
I decided it needed a little extra so I took some tulle and feathers and glued it in between the flowers. I just cut the tulle into squares and pinched it from the middle and glued it from the gathered center.
I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out.
