We took a plain, everyday red sweater and added black yoyos and crystal buttons to the collar. The sparkle addition transformed the sweater into a holiday ready top! For the hat, we added a layered felt flower, because, why not?! To jazz up the scarf, we added some super fluffy pom-poms. Pom poms make everything better!
Here’s what you’ll need:

– Black Cotton Fabric
– Black Thread
– 19mm Crystal Buttons (6)
– Clover Yo-Yo Maker

Let’s get crafty!
Step 1: Create 6 yo-yos.
Step 2: Sew your button to the center of your yo-yo. Repeat this step with all of your yo-yos
Step 3: Sew your yo-yo to the center of your sweater.
Step 4: Next, sew one of your yo-yos to the end of your collar. Center your other yo-yo between your two yo-yos. Repeat this on the other side of your sweater with your three remaining yo-yos.
Step 1: Make 6 pom-poms.
Step 2: Leave the two strands of yarn that you used to tie your pom-pom. Trim any long pieces of yarn. Put one end of your yarn strand through your needle and sew to the center of one end of your scarf.
Step 3: Once through, tie a couple of knots in the back with your other piece of yarn.
Step 4: Sew a pom-pom on each side of your center pom. Repeat on the other side of your scarf with your 3 remaining poms.
