"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Sweater Wreath for Fall

Here is how I made my wreath using an old sweater:
Cut off the bottom of an old sweater
(You will have a circle shape)
Turn under the cut edge, pin and sew leaving enough room to thread a wire through it (I used an old hanger) to make a gather in the shape of a circle.  Once you have the sweater gathered, secure the wire then you can take your sweater and glue it (I used E600) to the middle of a wreath (at the $1 store).  Then add any embellishments you like. (I used a flower, floral wire and an acorn top)
 Hang it with some ribbon and you are done!
