Scarf Wreath

What do you think of my homemade wreath?

It was inspired by the craft fair I went to in Paris. 

My mum and I saw something similar and loved it.
Yesterday I got out of the house, for the first time in 5 days!
and popped into the charity shop looking for some tea cups
for my candles and the minute I saw this scarf for two euros
I knew exactly what I was going to do with it !!
Take a wire hanger and bend it into a circular shape.
You may need pliers for this (I did)
Simply wrap the scarf around the hanger using a hot glue gun to keep in place
Then raid your jewellery drawer (yes I have a drawer, not just a box!)
for some sparklies or broken bits and bobs
and some buttons
and start attaching them randomly on the wreath like so
Use a piece of matching wool to create a loop at the top to hang the wreath.
That’s it!
10 minutes tops and only 2 euro
F A B U L O U S
(if I say so myself)
What have you been making for Christmas??

    Absolutely brilliant Michelle. Love it…almost worth going out and getting some wool like that to knit a scarf just to make the wreath

    Absolutely stunning! I've seen lots of lovely hand-made ones but this is the most original. I am so behind for Christmas but look forward to some baking. Gingerbread – yum! Have a great weekend. x

    Now that is clever. Looks really good. I made the feather boa wreathes last year, love this idea too.

    Great wreath Michelle and such good value. My sister in law makes some similar to yours maybe you saw hers in Paris (she is Belgian). Leiny and I have were crafting yesterday(you can check us out at Margie's Crafts The Vintage Store blog) but we did not get to craft today as we did the Meals On Wheel in the Landys. Hugs, Margie.

    Its beautiful and something really different – I would like to make a slightly wilder looking one with sheeps wool – if only I could find a barbed wire fence with wool caught up on it! I am making decorative food for the birds – will do a post later today. Betty

    That looks so nice, I would never have guessed it had once been a scarf! I'm going to start looking at things like scarves in a new light to see what I can do with them.
    You mentioned you were looking for teacups for candles? If you mean teacup candles, to fill the cups with wax, then I had a go at this recently and found the best place to find teacups was carboot sales. I found one teacup and saucer for 20p!!! Charity shops near me had teacups but their prices started from £1 upwards. You never know what you might find at a carboot!
