Can you believe that Christmas is just a few days away? If you’re like me, you probably have a few folks left on your list that could use some holiday cheer. With the clock ticking down, it’s time to get crafty! Here are some gift ideas that are quick, easy, and fun to make!
1. Upcycled Sweater Scarf
No knitting required! Doug at Green Upgrader walks you through creating a simple scarf from old sweaters. The only thing I’d add here is that it would probably be best to work with felted wool sweaters to avoid unraveling, but that’s easy as pie! Just toss those old, ill-fitting wool sweaters in the wash and then into the dryer on high heat, and you’ll have them all felted up in no time.
If you don’t want to felt or your sweaters aren’t wool, you could also use the zig zag stitch on your machine to carefully finish the edges of each piece. (Another option for old sweaters: pillows!)
