Wool sweaters, cotton sweaters, and even acrylic sweaters – there’s a place for all of these in a crafty Christmas!

Reclaimed sweaters are a great source of cheap or even free fabric. You can find old sweaters in the back of your closet, at thrift stores, and at yard sales. They’re perfect for spreading holiday cheer and make the perfect material for upcycled holiday decorations. Check out the tutorials on the next page, which utilize all kinds of upcycled sweaters in their creation, and get inspired to recycle sweaters in your own holiday craft projects.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
