I am sure that I am not the only one with kids who wait until the last minute to tell us they need something the next day. Take for instance this last week before school lets out for Winter brake...All week the school planned for days like, Christmas sock day, pajama day and ugly sweater day...
So we looked at some stores but the sweaters weren't really ugly and at 25.00 and up I didn't think it was worth it, we found some vulgar sweaters not suitable for my girls and then the obnoxious ones were 40.00 and up - so no thank you not for one day of one year....so mom, that's me, decided to find a sweater at the Thrift store my go to spot for DIY projects.
Found this bright green sweater in the women's section and took it home. Then pulled out a bunch of different do-dads I had at home so she could decide how she wanted to put it together.
I was thinking we were going for AN UGLY SWEATER but she had a different idea. She looked on PINTEREST and found one she liked and she designed the reindeer cut it out and I glued all the stuff down, because I was using Hot glue...and here is what she made
Here is the crafty genius in her new sweater...which she wore on Thursday
Her older sister liked it so much she wore it to school today.
Goes to show that a little creativity can go a long way!!!
I'll be sharing this at the following parties:
Happy Holidays and here's hoping your creativity is in high gear this Holiday.
