Boiled Wool Christmas Trees

6:00:00 AM

Sometimes Crafting and Thrifting go hand in hand...
like when I found a beautiful green, boiled wool jacket.

 The sweater was almost free so the price was certainly right, 
but I'm not a boiled wool jacket kind of lady so 
I got out my scissors and started cutting...

I got enough triangles out of this jacket to fill a basket...
Cutting boiled wool is easy and it doesn't ravel. I sewed each of the triangles around 2 sides leaving the bottom open for stuffing.

I added a distressed clothespin for the stem and a rusty bell
at the top for junky bling.... both of these aging techniques can be found by clicking the links.

The little boiled wool tree ornaments are perfect for tying to a package or hanging from a tree.

Beautiful too in a bowl or basket on display.

This basket is going to be sold at a local craft fair.

A great use for a great old jacket!

Update:  They sold like hotcakes at the craft fair!

  2. I have several felted wool sweaters that I've been creating with and lots of scraps to use up. This is the perfect project. I'm thinking of using a cinnamon stick for the trunk. Would you be willing to share your price? I, too, will be taking them to a art/craft fair and want to price them to sell. Thanks!!
