Have you got a Christmas jumper? I haven’t but I know that my kids love them! I’m always trying to think of new activities to keep my kids busy so I thought it would be fun to try out a Christmas jumper craft for kids with these fun ornaments. I made these with my two year old daughter while my son was at school one day, guess what his opinion on them was?!
You will need:
Needle and Thread
How to make your Christmas Jumper Ornaments:
Using your scissors cut a jumper shape out of some felt.
Tip – use fabric scissors to get a much cleaner cut, normal scissors can make cut felt look fuzzy
Although any Christmas jumper craft is going to look a little…well, not like something Martha Stewart would have up, you can really help the situation here by cutting the felt out in the same colours you are using to decorate your tree. Our tree has mainly red ornaments on it so these red Christmas jumper ornaments actually don’t look too out of place!
Once I’d cut them out I let my daughter go wild with the big bx of Christmas stickers, these are the same ones that I bought for £1 in The Range and that I used in our scissor skills Christmas trees so they have been getting an awful lot of use so far this year and were a fab investment for a quid!
Once your kid has finished decorating them, make a loop using a needle and thread through the top of your Christmas jumpers and they are ready to go on your tree. I actually think they look pretty cool?!
I was a little bit concerned about what my son would think as at five years old he obviously thinks decorating the tree is his domain but he loved these little jumpers when he saw them and asked to make one straight away too.
