Use vintage or new holiday minis to create these unique DIY Christmas sweater clips! Perfect for embellishing your fashion items during the holidays.
Hi guys! It’s Ashlee from My So Called Crafty Life, and I am back today to share a fun retro Christmas DIY accessory with you all. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a total nut for Christmas, especially anything vintage and Christmas!
I love little holiday minis and have a bunch of vintage and new little treasures that I love to craft with. At this time of year I wear a lot of sweaters, and I thought it would be fun to make a couple of vintage style Christmas DIY cardigan clips to embellish my sweaters for the holidays.
DIY Christmas Sweater Clips
Gather These Supplies
- *Sweater Clips (I bought mine at Jo-Ann)
- *Vintage or New Minis like deer, Santas, wooden ornaments, mini sisal wreathes…
- Jump Rings
- Jewelry Pliers and Cutters
- Jewelry Glue
You can cut two pieces of chain, one longer than the other to make a double chain that hangs at different lengths. If you need to glue buttons to light reflectors or wreath to felt or chips etc., do so now.
Now place a good amount of jewelry glue onto the sweater clip and glue on your object. Do the same with the other side. Prop up your clips if you need to keep them level while the glue dries on little bits of wood or folded paper, etc.
I hope you all will make a set of cardigan clips of your own. They are a fabulous accessory to embellish a sweater and bring some cheer to your holiday style!
