I bought a few wool sweaters from the thrift store and felted them in my washing machine and dryer. Quickly on my sewing machine I created veins on each leaf that I cut out from the sweaters. To make this wreath I pulled out a large piece of cardboard from my recycling bin and cut it in a circle, using a glue gun I hot glued each leaf to the cardboard in a circular pattern in no particular order. For the center I added the quote "family is one of nature's masterpieces".
I love that this wreath is made entirely of recycled items.
Also check out my post featuring the leaf ornaments I left on friends' doors.
Crafting out of the recycling bin isn't just for kids, you should give it a try!
