Sweater Covered Ornaments


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.


Can you tell which are mine? 


These are my daughter’s.


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.
