DIY holiday sweatshirts: Just add pom-poms and Christmas spirit

You can, of course, binge-watch Hallmark Channel Christmas movies in ordinary yoga pants. But why, when it’s so easy to make these ridiculously adorable DIY holiday sweatshirts? Think.Make.Share Designer Kelly C. went crazy with a bag of pom-poms and some iron-on letters, and now we all want them.

The SLEIGH ALL DAY shirt starts with the letters—lay them out and follow the instructions to iron them on. Next, map out where you want the pom-poms, alternating rows of bigger and teenier. If you’re hot gluing the balls down, you can just get going—if you decide to sew them on, pin them in place first.

The FA LA LA shirt was the easiest. Kelly cut simple tree shapes the same size as the letters. Then it’s as simple as laying it all out, ironing on the letters, and sewing on the trees and pom-pom toppers.

For the all-over pom-pom shirt, just sew on (or glue on) pom-poms until it makes you happy. This shirt just looks delightfully random: Kelly flattened it on a table, then laid the pom-poms out in straight lines, alternating larger and littler balls. Then she checked to make sure the colors were distributed evenly. As above, you can glue them right on, or pin them in place then stitch them to the shirt.
