Everyone knows I love recycling. For years I have collected needlepoints and finally the time has come to use them for a story! They can be found very cheap in a thrift store or a flea market and can be re-made into something very cool and modern

This project is from my Fall 2015 issue!

You will need:




metal wreath frame

hot glue gun

  1. Start by making a leaf template out of paper.
  2. Place the leaf on top of the needlepoint and start cutting out leaves. You will need about 40–50 depending on how big your wreath is.
  3. Start hot gluing the leaves to the wreath with all the leafs going the same way.
  4. Work yourself all the way around.
