Make an easy Ugly Sweater Wreath! This is the perfect festive Christmas wreath, and it’s so easy to make!
Decorating for Christmas is an enjoyable task at my house. My kids love making crafts, setting up the Christmas tree, and helping me make holiday decor. This year, we thought it would be fun to make something with an ugly sweater.
Ugly sweaters are all the rage during the holiday season, but what could we make with one? We finally decided to try making a wreath with one, and we love how it turned out!
To get the directions to make your own Ugly Sweater Wreath, keep scrolling to the picture of it. But first, I want to tell you about the holiday fun I’m having with some blogging friends! Welcome back to year 6 of our Festive Christmas Event where we team up with a bunch of talented blogging friends to bring you a plethora of creative ways to celebrate your holiday season.
We will be baking some cookie recipes for you, sharing some party games, making some handmade gifts, doing some ornament crafting, and sharing our Christmas movies family fun. There will be breakfast recipes and as always our decorated Christmas Trees which is always a fun tour of homes.
New this year is Gift Guides (check out this Coffee Lover Gift Guide, or this Gift Guide for Cooks, or this Grilling Gift Guide). We are right there with you shopping from home due to Covid 19, and we understand how hard that can be so we have been busy little Elves doing tons of research to create fabulous Gift Guides to help you with your holiday shopping.
Materials needed to make an Ugly Sweater Wreath:
- Foam wreath form
- Utility knife
- An ugly sweater
- 2 colors of wire edged ribbon
- Tacky glue or Fray Check
- Twine or jute
Using the utility knife, make a cut through the wreath form. Figure out which part of the sweater you want to use, and cut it to size to fit the wreath form. For my wreath, I used both sleeves.
If the material is an actual knit sweater, you will either need to serge/sew the edges, or use tacky glue or fray check on the edges, so it doesn’t unravel. Tacky glue and fray check may stain your fabric, so take that into consideration.
Slide the sweater through the cut in the wreath form, and pull it down over the wreath form. For mine, I overlapped the 2 sleeves, trying to put those seams behind where the ribbon would go.
Using pins, pull the sweater tight around the form and pin into the form in the back.
Using your bottom ribbon, wrap around the wreath, pinning where necessary to keep in place.
Repeat with the other ribbon, off-setting it by and inch or so (it will depend on the size of your wreath form and the width of your ribbon).
To make the bow, I followed these directions from Lizzy & Erin.
Attach bow to the wreath by either tying it on with the twine, or pinning it in place, and you’re done!
