Upcycled Sweater Holiday Crafts

Upcycled Sweater Crafts

Before you throw out that sweater you no longer wear or no longer fits, consider upcycling it into these holiday crafts including a sweater pillow, Christmas tree or wine bottle holder. These make great decor for your home or  handmade gifts.

Upcycled Sweater Holiday Crafts

Before I donate clothes anymore, I always take a second look at my items to determine if they’re something I could use to make into something else. I had enough sweater material from this sweater (which had a hole in one of the sleeves) to make three different holiday crafts. Click on the images or the links to go to the step-by-step instructions for each.

Upcycled Sweater Pillow – I love how this pillow turned out. The sweater pattern gives it good texture and a few buttons add a cute detail.

Upcycled Sweater Pillow - get step by step instructions on how to turn an old sweater into a cozy pillow.


Sweater Tree – I originally saw one of these at Target, and as the good little crafter I am, immediately thought “I can make that!”.

Sweater Tree - make a Christmas tree out of an old sweater. Get the easy step by step instructions.


Sweater Wine Bottle Holder – I found this idea in a catalog. It’s a perfect hostess gift for the holidays or works well to dress up your own holiday table.

Sweater Wine Bottle Holder - upcycle an old sweater for stylish gift giving.


Here are some other ideas I have on my list to craft out of old sweaters:

  1. Sweater Mittens

  3. Sweater Wrapped Wreath
  4. Pet Bed
  5. Sweater Tote Bag
  6. Sweater Wrapped Frame
  7. 5 Minute Cowl Scarf
  8. Cup Cozy
  9. Sweater Stocking
  10. Sweater Wrapped Ornaments

Happy crafting!
