I was about to give these sweaters a new home to the second hand store & realized the sleeves would work great for this Valentine's Day Wreath.
Start with this foam wreath(12 inches)
1-Cut through the foam wreath
2-Cut all the sleeves (& cuffs) off of the sweaters.
3-Its so cute, now I want to wear this as a sweater vest (I just need to sew the cut edges)
4-Place 1 sleeve with the right side facing inside the other sleeve that is wrong side facing & sew.
5-Keep doing this until it forms a long "tube".
6-After turning the tube inside out, inch the sweater sleeve tube onto the foam wreath. Apply a dab of glue to adhere the ends together. (I used 2 inch painters tape to hold it together while the glue dries).
7-Whip stitch the open ends together.
8-On the back side apply a few dabs of glue & straight pins to hold the sweater tube in place.
Ready to hang!
