DIY: Revamp Your Sweaters

Sweater weather is definitely better weather! As I was going through my closet the other day, I discovered some old sweaters that I wasn’t quite ready to get rid of yet (call it my inner hoarder). So I decided to revamp them and make them totally cute and up-to-date.

1. Hey, Studs
My first DIY is super quick and easy. I just picked up an assortment of studs from my local craft store and added them to my sweater. It’s a really simple (and really trendy) way to add some “oomph” to any of your old or worn out sweaters.

2. Glitter Girl
My next sweater is this unique graphic sweater. For supplies you need spray glue, gold glitter and some stencil letters (I found these online, printed them and cut them out). I placed the letters onto my sweater and held them down as I carefully sprayed some glue, then shook glitter onto the sweater. If glitter isn’t really your thing, you can opt for some colored fabric paint instead.

3. Patch Job
My last DIY sweater is my personal favorite and kind of a 2-in-1. So, you’re actually going to need two sweaters: one you like, and one you don’t like. I took the sweater I didn’t like so much and traced two ovals on the body of the sweater. Then I cut them out and sprayed some glitter onto them. Once they were dry, I glued them onto the elbows of the sweater I do like, and BAM! You are left with some adorable elbow patches.

Now, I didn’t want to waste the rest of my other sweater (the one I cut up), so I decided to use the sleeves and make some warm and cozy leg warmers.

If you guys try out any of these ideas, post a picture to Instagram with the hashtag #nordstrombp—I’d love to see ’em!
