Embellished Holiday Sweater Craft

Make floral Christmas sweater designs with this easy fashion craft. Purchase a cardigan in a holiday color, or use a plain sweater you already have in your closet. Fuse silk flowers to the front of the sweater in a pretty arrangement, and then outline the flowers in glitter glue for a bit of holiday sparkle. This is an easy way to make a Christmas sweater to wear for all your holiday parties!
