Christmas In July: Ugly Sweater Wreath

I've been wanting to create a wreath specifically for my laundry room for a while, and when I saw some sweater ornaments at a craft store, I got the idea to create an ugly sweater wreath. The sweaters were already on hangers, so I tied red and white twine like a clothes line and hung the sweaters on it. After this holiday season is over, I can easily swap out the sweaters for other mini clothes.
I think these mini sweaters are adorable. I like that one sweater has fur. I think the scarf is really cute on the blue sweater. And you gotta love the Christmas tree sweater and the JOY sweater.

This wreath was super easy to put together.  I tied twine to the wreath and then hung the sweaters on the twine by their hangers.

I used a piece of fabric and a nail to hang this wreath. It is quite large. I also hung an ornament over the nail.

Here's the wreath hanging up in my laundry room.

      1. LOL Thanks Mary! I don't think they're ugly either. I thought they were adorable, too! And I believe I found them either at Michael's or Joann's.
