Supplies needed for this project :

  • Thrifted sweater
  • Cardboard
  • Stuffing
  • Something to use for a tree trunk
  • Hot glue
  • Christmas star

1. Create a Cardboard Template and Cut out Tree Shapes

I just freehanded a tree shape onto a piece of cardboard, then cut it out to use as a template. Using a marker or colored chalk, trace around the template onto the wrong side of the sweater. I placed it at the bottom edge so I could get the bottom hem on the Christmas tree.

2. Glue the Tree Shapes Together then Stuff it

With the exception of the bottom, glue the top and sides of the two tree shapes together, using hot glue. Then use pillow stuffing to fill the tree.

3. Add a Trunk onto the Tree

I had these tiny metal buckets, so I decided to use them for the trunk of the trees.

Start by gluing the bottom sides together and leave an opening just big enough for the trunk.

Add some glue inside the bottom opening and insert the trunk of the tree.

4. Attach a Christmas Star to the Tree

The last thing to do is to add a star. You could add a star button and sew it on, or just add a wooden or metal star and use hot glue to attach.
