For two consecutive years we've attended the local and fabulous Egg Factory, 'Eggsmas' Christmas fair in Hebden Bridge. The event brings together a diverse range of local designers and makers, many of whom use the The Egg Factories creative co-working space, as a base for making and connecting with other creative professionals. As well as selling our sustainable knitwear range at the event (and always eager to reduce landfill waste) we recycled our discarded knitwear cutoffs as a repurposed Christmas decoration activity.
To make the decoration you'll need:
- 40cm length of flexible wire
- Wire cutters, scissors,
- Scraps of thread/wool (shimmer threads are great!)
Bend the wire to form a hoop and secure the ends by twisting together. Attach the wool/threads by knotting onto the hoop. Trim as required and add a length of thread for hanging.
