I am so excited to be teaming up with threadUP today! In case you don't know, threadUP is the easiest way to save money on great Women's and Kid's clothing brands and sell clothes for cash. They are like a consignment store, but simpler. On thredUP you can refresh your entire wardrobe online without ever leaving your house!
When it comes to fashion, I am a huge fan of upcycling clothing. I love having the ability to turn a consignment store find into something more personal, breathing a breathe of fresh air into it. I searched thredUP's website and scored some adorable kids clothing. I got a red sweater, cream scarf and purple hat. I thought these were perfect since the chilly Fall air is upon us. The items I bought were cute plain, but I decided to take them one step further with a little DIY action!
I took my plain, everyday red sweater and added black yoyos and crystal buttons to the collar. The sparkle addition transformed my sweater into a holiday ready top! For my hat, I added a layered felt flower, because, why not?! To jazz up my scarf, I added some super fluffy pom-poms. Pom poms make everything better!

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.
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.
