Christmas Garland

For our final Christmas DIY we created garland out of upcycled sweaters.  We used four sweaters from Goodwill in holiday colors (two cable knit and two argyle), along with paper shape templates and yarn.  You will also need a needle and thread.photo_11_large

First, we found paper templates of a star, candy cane, and Christmas tree via Google and used Photoshop to size them.  Then, we created our own flag template with a ruler and some paper.  The shapes can be as small or large as you want them, but we went with each one being about 3″ tall.  Use the paper templates to cut out your sweaters in the various shapes.  We didn’t really plan how many of each shape and color, since we wanted a more organic look.  Our only stipulation was that we needed twice as many flags, since they were going in between each shape.


Once we had finally cut out all of our shapes (there were around 50 for all of the garland we wanted), we measured how big each strand needed to be.  We didn’t measure or anything, just kind of eyeballed it.  After cutting the correct size, we placed our shapes along the yarn while trying to make them uniformly spaced and having a relatively even amount of each shape/color.  Finally, we just stitched each flag onto the yarn one or two times to keep it stable.


That’s it!  This easy DIY only took an afternoon, but brings so much cheer to the store!  If you try this DIY yourself, make sure to share it with us on Facebook and Twitter!  Happy Holidays!
