One of the best part of the holidays are festive sweaters and sweatshirts. It’s a blast to go to a holiday party and don your favorite cheesy Christmas apparel. I can’t remember what I was reading, but recently, a link took me to the below sweatshirt on ShopBop.
So cute, right? Price check: $98. What the WHAT?! (as my co-worker Julie would say). It’s cute, but that’s just too much for a sweatshirt that might be worn once a year. But… it’s the perfect DIY project!
This project cost under $15 and took less than 10 minutes. During a busy holiday season, that’s all you can ask for, right?
-White sweatshirt (I got mine at Walmart for $5.96; it’s even cheaper on the website!)
-Sheet of orange felt
-Sheet for black felt
1-Lay your sweatshirt out.
2-Cut two large squares with rounded edges for eyes, the carrot nose and seven squares with rounded edges for the mouth. I based the size of each on the proportions on the sweatshirt.
3-Cover the back with a hearty amount of Liquid Stitch and secure on sweatshirt.
4-Let the sweatshirt and all the pieces dry for 30 minutes.
I mean, really? How easy is that?!
As you prep for the holidays, don’t spend too much time if you’re looking for a festive top for a party. This DIY will save you lots of stress and time. Throw on a red scarf, a black winter hat or top hat (that would be so cute!) and head to your party!
Have a great day!
