No Sew Wreath Using Sleeves of an Old Sweater

The best part of the holidays is all the DIY projects and this creative one takes old sleeves of a sweater and transforms them into a no sew Christmas wreath.

The Christmas season is steadily approaching. Are you ready?

If you’re looking for a super quick and easy way to add some new holiday decor to your home this holiday season, then this upcycled project is for you!

I made this beautiful simple and rustic wreath using just the sleeves of an old sweater!

And the best part? No sewing!

1. First, you’ll need to cut one part of your wreath. A serrated kitchen knife will do the trick.

2. Next, cut the arms of an old sweater.

3. Thread your arms through the slit you just made.

4. Using duct tape, tape the slit you made earlier and overlap the ‘cuffs’ of your sleeves together. This will become the bottom of your wreath.

5. The larger part of your sleeves {the part that meets the shoulder} will be pinned together at the back with mini safety pins. How easy is that? No sewing!

6. I came across this adhesive ribbon today. Adhesive ribbon! I know, amazing, right? Attach two strips to some burlap and you’ve got yourself a nice way to hang up your Christmas wreath!

7. Now you just need to gather some supplies to make a nice little embellishment. I snipped some boxwood from a bush in my yard, used red and white twine, and a little kraft tag with some little stamps and away I went! I just tied the boxwood together with the red and white twine and threaded it through a hole in the sweater.

Ta da! I love how this holiday wreath turned out.

And I love the little Merry Christmas tag.

I hope this has inspired you to upcycle make a no-sew sweater wreath this holiday season!

Make sure to pin it for later!
