As I shared with you in the post Bloomsbury Loft, I had wanted to buy one of Judith's sweater wreaths, but it sold before I got it. So ~ I decided to make my own and off to Goodwill I went to find some sweaters for material. I started out making one for my bedroom, but ended up making my first one for my newly painted pale pink bathroom. Here is my first attempt.
So much fun and so much trial and error. I kept looking online for ideas on how to make different kinds of flowers.
I picked the colors for this wreath based on the colors in my shower curtain. I have found that fabric swatches are good guides for picking and coordinating colors.
The fun part is you can incorporate your own or your child's old sweaters and keep a favorite sweater around long past its wearable or trendy days. The white and green on this wreath are from old sweaters of mine ~ one shrunk and one too stretched out to wear anymore.
My next goal is to make a few to sell on Etsy ~ after I finish making one for my bedroom of course.
