Felted Wool Sweater Christmas Trees

New in my pumpkinbear etsy shop, one of our favorite handmade holiday decorations: felted wool sweater Christmas trees--

I use wool sweaters that I felt, and then I overdye them green--the color doesn't catch on all of the sweaters, but it catches enough that the trees all match, while retaining the obvious juxtaposition of different colors and patterns:

The day after Thanksgiving: that's the day that our own felted wool forest will come to life here at home!

Another time I had only sweaters in ugly colors, so I overdyed them all green and they turned out really cute that way, too!
