Recycled sweater ornaments

Hey Everyone,
Not very much longer
until Christmas huh? This is a great, and very fast ornament or last minute gift topper you can make for all your friends. I made Stockings, Gloves, Stars & Hearts. I also have Gingerbread Men and Trees ready to make tomorrow.

I have been racking my brain on what kind of ornament to make for an exchange my MIL is having next week. It's also a cookie/candy exchange, but that was the easy part for me.

So today I started searching around the internet and found the coolest idea from DOLLAR STORE CRAFTS.
I decided to make her 10 second ornament project, and the great part about it? I had everything I needed here at home, wooo hooo, no extra money was spent! CLICK HERE to get her instructions on how to make these ornaments.
She has you use lots of different materials to wrap your ornaments with, but I have tons of felted sweaters on hand, I decided to use them instead. I think they really turned out good. Let me know what you think. The more the pattern on the sweater, the neater they turned out.

I was playing around on Flickr today, and decided to make a cozy at home group for projects that I have featured on my blog. If any of you have made any of the crochet patterns, or other crafts I have had on my blog, please join this group and add pictures. I am so excited to see what you all have been doing. Please follow this link if your interested....
