Have you seen adorable sweater Christmas ornaments?!  I started seeing them pop up now and then on Pinterest and fell in love with them, but I did not want to have to buy old sweaters and/or sew.  Turns out, I didn't have to!  I found all the supplies I needed for these DIY sweater ornaments at The Dollar Store and they took less than 2 minutes to make, and cost only $2.00 each.

How to Make Sweater Ornaments

Materials Needed for One Sweater Ornament:

That's it!  How cute are these DIY sweater ornaments?!  I love how they turned out and I don't think anyone would ever guess that I made them with Dollar Store supplies!  I can't wait to hang them on our tree :)  And if you have old ornaments that you aren't using anymore, then you could make these for even LESS than $2.00 each!

    These are adorable, and even with Christmas right around the corner, there is still time to make a batch of these! You could also make smaller ones using socks from the dollar store, and make twice as many for the same price.

    Thanks for sharing this really cute and easy project. Merry Christmas!

  2. Saw these on Hometalk today and they are so cute! We are making ornaments for a gift exchange and I’m totally stealing this! :)

  3. Absolutely my kind of project…:-) Cute, easy and on the budget! Love it!

  4. Don’t you just love it when an easy project comes together? Awesome Dollar Store project!

    I’d love for you to share this project at my Show Me Saturday party. We are live now! ;)
