Make your own Christmas Jumper Day with Save the Children
Make your own Christmas Jumper and get your Christmas craft on
I know you, like me probably absolutely love Christmas with the exception of probably 3 things
1. The cost (yikes)
2 The waste (eek) and
3 All the flipping things you have to remember!
Okay well, don’t worry this post is not going to encourage you to buy or spend or think instead it is going to encourage you to get your Christmas craft on!

Make your Own Christmas Jumper Kit
For the thrifty and eco-conscious Save the Children are encouraging you to make your own Xmas jumper this year. They suggest either by purchasing a plain sweatshirt form a charity shop or digging out an old one that you are happy to customise. The Book People have a brilliant personalise your jumper kit for you to upcyle your jumper and they will donate 25% .
You can buy it here for £3.99 – a whole lot cheaper than a new Christmas jumper and inside the box is a kit to make a snowman, Santa or reindeer so actually you could customise 3 jumpers with the one kit.
Here is our homemade Jumper
Here is one my daughter made (no glue required the set is already sticky!)
