Over the last few years, I've accumulated a lot of fabric from sewing. I'm that kind of person who hates throwing anything away, even those bits of fabric that are useless. I 've definitely the love the idea of frugality and upcycling.
Last Christmas, I purchased a tinsel wreath for 25 pence on sale from Poundland. I removed the tinsel from the frame. I started doing this and forgot about it. I found it last night.
I used scraps of fabric and cut them into strips ( eyeballing it) using pinking shears, it stops the fabric from fraying and gives it a nice scalloped edge. I tied the strip on to the frame and knotted.
This Youtube video shows you how to make a wreath using wire instead of a frame and the Knot technique.
This me having a bit a fun and using the wreath as a headdress.Despite my miserable expression, I was having fun.
I had this bow on an old sock, they had been washed before use.
I cut the bow off the sock and stuffed with material and hand sewed it.
I attached the bow on to a strap I tied onto the frame.
I used this trim to allow the wreath to hang on the wall. I placed the ribbon through the loop and tied a bow the hole.
This is the wreath I'm planning to hang up in my craft room when I finally get it sorted. I've got it hanging up in the sitting room for now. I love the use of white, grey and black. Considering its only coast me 25 pence to make and upcycled fabric that would end up in the landfill, I'm stoked.
