$4 Goodwill Christmas Sweater Turned Into Pillows

I don't know about you, but when I think of a Christmas Sweater - it's generally one with flashing lights and Rudolph's nose twinkles and the whole ugly story. :) But when I found this sweater at Goodwill, I immediately knew it would make cute pillows. Yes...pillows. I used one sweater and made TWO pillows. I share step-by-step pictures on how I did it.
These pillows speak of Christmas with the deer and snowflakes. Warm and cozy and perfect for a traditional Christmas style.
I decided to keep the little pockets on the front. I thought they would be cute with sprigs of cedar or possibly secret notes from Santa.
I left the silver decorative buttons in place.
I love the cute little snowflake on each pocket.
The deer design was also on the back of the sweater. That is why I decided to create two pillows.

    Cute! Of course, ugly Christmas sweaters are hard to come by these days. They're kind of like a cult. I looked for some today and goodwill and couldn't find any. I've used lots of sweaters ot make pillows. They never unravel.

    • @Rebecca Platt I agree. I stopped by my local Salvation Army and only found one good one, although for these pillows I don't look for the ugly ones necessarily. :)
