A creative spin on the traditional wreath.
This one is made of recycled sweaters,
yes sweaters, cut in squares and triangles.
I saw it in Chatelaine last year and thought
it was ingenious! You'll need thick-gauge
wire, 3 to 5 old sweaters, good fabric scissors
and ribbon. Bend the wire into the shape of a
wreath with a loop at one end. Thread the
knitted squares onto the wire, until 1 inch of the
wire remains. Feed the wire end through the loop
and twist to close. Finish off with a large bow.

one made from pot scrubbers!
Apples double as candle holders.
Natural and simple.
