Calling all thrifty crafters! I have a fun no sew sweater Christmas tree project for you. It’s inexensive, quick and so stinkin cute, I don’t think you’ll be able to resist.

If there’s one thing I cannot resist, it’s a cute set of whimsical arrows. Put it on your wall, a necklace, blanket, garland…it doesn’t matter. Give me all the whimsical arrow art!
