Sweater Covered Ornaments

DSC04233_3493

A couple of weeks ago, Sonny at 155 Dream Lane shared her sweater ornaments here.  I forwarded this post onto my daughter because, while she’s not really crafty {yet}, I thought she might like this project.  Especially since she did just buy a whole bunch of sweaters at Goodwill recently for another project.  We used some of her leftovers for this project.

I provided the rest of the supplies.

Once we got the circles sized correctly, we covered styrofoam balls.  After securing them with a rubber band, we added ribbons and button embellishments.

Here they are all together.

Here are mine on my tree.  Love ‘em and they will be something I will treasure when I decorate my tree in the future, remembering how my daughter and I crafted together today.

Except for the hot glue for attaching the buttons, this would be a great craft to do with kids.
