Christmas Sweater Gift Tags

Posted on December 20, 2012
Hi, Everyone! If you are in the middle of all your Christmas gift wrapping and are looking for some ideas, I have a REALLY cute one to share with you today! My Christmas sweater gift tags that I made a couple of days ago! This is a really cute way to personalize a gift and add a little something extra to boring old wrapping paper! And once the gift is unwrapped, the little sweater can be used as a Christmas ornament! The fun part is that you can make your Christmas sweater look as festive and cute as you want! Here is how you can make one of these gift tags yourself…
.
,
YOU WILL NEED
Felt (color of your choice)
Needle and thread (color of your choice)
Ornament hooks
Polyfill
Gluegun
.
.
DIRECTIONS
.
1. First, make your sweater stencil on a piece of cardstock, by drawing out your sweater shape in your desired size. Cut it out, then cut out two identical sweater shapes out of some felt.
 ,
2. Next, using the colored thread, decorate the top sweater piece with whatever design you come up with! Using hot glue, stick the top and bottom sweater pieces together by applying hot glue to the edges little by little, stuffing the sweater with polyfill as you go along (leave the neckline open for now, don’t apply glue to it yet).
 ,
3. Make a little hanger out of an ornament hook, place it inside the sweater and secure it with some hot glue. Place hot glue along the neckline part, too. And you’re all done!

Happy Christmas Crafting, Everyone!

    These are just the cutest things EVER. It’s too late for me to make them now, but next year I’m going to get a jump-start on Christmas (like in July) and make these for the family. I love stitching things anyway, and I’m sure these precious little things will be very well received. Thanks for the great idea. I’m your newest follower.
