Christmas is just around the corner and as offices and families across the country get ready for Christmas Jumper day on 15th December, we asked founder of sustainable fashion brand Gillian June for her favourite DIY hacks to make a festive Christmas jumper this December without having to buy something new.

Why it's time to #GiveAKnit about Christmas jumpers.

1) Do you want to build a snowman?

Turn an ordinary sweater into a festive feast by cutting 3 circles out of an old t-shirt to create a snowman, use buttons for eyes and a ribbon for its scarf! After some tips on getting started with sewing? Have a browse here.

2) Pom-poms

Use pompoms to create a festive garland or tree across your jumper. Making pom-poms is super quick and easy – check out this tutorial on pinterest if you need some inspiration.

3) Tie a bow

Sew ribbons onto the sleeves of your dads old jumper to turn it into a chic oversized jumper for yourself. The ribbons will stop the sleeves from being too long for you whilst adding a pretty festive detail.
