A Christmas Wreath Made of Scarves

I love making wreaths of all kinds and earlier this fall I decided I wanted to make a new Christmas wreath for the front door. I just had to wait until I found the three things I needed to put it together. Scarves…just three scarves. That’s all I needed… a red one, a white one, and a green one.

Here are my supplies: three $1 thrifted scarves and a good sturdy coat hanger. I found the red and white scarves about a month ago and I was just waiting to find a green one, and I finally found  one last week. The scarves needed to be a similar weight and length. The ones I’m using are lightweight, but very fluffy.

Using pliers I undid the threaded part of the coat hanger, broke off the hanger part by bending it back and forth, and then straightened out what was left. Then I bent it into a circle and joined it together with gorilla tape.

I grabbed each scarf in its centre and held them all together in my hand. Then I began wrapping the three scarves around the hanger, making sure the colours stayed in the same order. (Because I’m obsessive like that. lol.)

Here’s what it looked like when I was finished wrapping all the way around the hanger. I wrapped an elastic band around the ends of the scarves and arranged how I wanted them to hang.

Then, because I thought it needed a little something more, I added a $1 thrifted brooch to give it a little bling. A little bling never hurt anybody. lol.

And here’s my finished wreath. I could add more embellishments, but I like the simplicity of it just the way it is.

This wreath was a piece of Christmas cake to make, and it cost me just $4.

I love the fact that the scarves are just wrapped around the hanger, so I can easily change this wreath next year if I want to. I think just using the red and white ones would make a lovely candy cane looking wreath. Scarves can be found in so many colours, so it would be so easy to match any Christmas decor.

 

Don’t forget to pin it!

  2. So pretty! Love the brighter shade of green, it makes the whole wreath pop! And I remember when those fuzzy scarves were all the rage at local gift shops. Now they are showing up in thrift stores – funny how that works!
