12 Makes of Christmas! Upcycled Sweater Pillow

For the third day of 12 Makes of Christmas I will show you how to upcycle an ugly sweater, or a cute one, into a fabulous pillow. These are super trendy in home decor right now, and I’ll show you how to make your own.

I LOVE ugly Christmas sweaters. I get a new one each year. But last year’s sweater came from a big box store that isn’t exactly known for the longevity of its clothing.

So after wearing it once a week between Thanksgiving and Christmas, it couldn’t take one more wash. So I am turning it into a holiday pillow so it can live on.
