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!

Scarf Makeover:

Step 1: Make 6 pom-poms.

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.

Hat Makeover:

Step 1: Grab your felt and cut 6 circles about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Cut a felt circle that measures about 1 and 1/2 inches in diameter. Take one circle and fold it in half.
Step 2: Fold one side in toward the center.
Step 3: Flip your felt over and fold the other end of your felt in, forming a ‘S’ shape.
Step 4: Put a dab of hot glue on the inside of both sides of your felt petal. Repeat Steps 2-5 with your other felt circles. Put glue on the end of one petal and glue it to your smaller circle. Continue gluing petals around your smaller circle.
Step 5: Put glue on the bottom of your remaining petal and stick it in the center of your petals so it is upright. Use your hands to fluff up your other petals.
Step 6: Sew your felt flower to the side of your hat. Make sure you sew the ends down.
