I have been having a ton of fun lately making projects that are frugal, easy, and can also make great gifts. With Christmas around the corner, another project I have become addicted to is making a DIY Beanie from an Upcycled Sweater.
All of the kids around here like to wear their beanies! You can always find them at the stores, and they usually range anywhere from $10 and up. But why pay for something you can make just as easily? As well as get rid of some of those old sweaters? I am game for emptying out my closet…it means I get to refresh it with more current styles. But rather than get rid of my old sweaters, I am using them for projects!
With this DIY Beanie from an Upcyled Sweater you can literally make this project in about 10 minutes. I even included a video from start to finish.
Now, I have seen a few videos that show you how to make these by sewing, fabric gluing, etc. I thought I would show you a no sew project with using just a little heat n bond and your iron.
DIY Beanie from Upcycled Sweater
- old sweater (make sure it isn’t too thick or heavy, these need to be slightly light weight)
- Heat n Bond (about $2.50 from a craft or sewing store)
Check out the video below and watch how easy it is to turn that old sweater into a fun and functional accessory to keep your head warm this up coming winter.
You can always use a heavier weight sweater as well. I have a few of those on hand as well. For a heavier weight sweater I do recommend either sewing or using a glue gun and fabric glue sticks to help it adhere a bit better.
I hope you enjoyed this DIY Beanie from Upcycled Sweater tutorial, and make sure to follow me on Pinterest to see what other fun projects I have been crafting up lately!
