I know I have. Well, every day in December is Christmas jumper day for me… but I’m talking about the official Christmas Jumper Day with a capital C, J and D. This year, Save the Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day is taking place on Friday 16th December. Silliness will be sweeping the nation as schools, homes and offices across the country will be ditching their day-to-day dress for colourful, garish, crazy knitted jumpers instead.I’ve got my pink polka dot squirrel jumper (with sparkly sequinned acorn and fluffy furry tail) at the ready to wear on the big day. And the best bit is that all this silliness has a serious purpose – by sticking on a daft sweater and donating £2 to Save the Children through christmasjumperday.org you’ll be saving children’s lives and giving them a brighter future.
Here’s my step-by-step guide to DIYing your own snowman jumper
And that’s not the only way you can help. If you’ve finished with your festive jumper from last year why not take it to your nearest Save the Children store where unwanted Christmas jumpers will be resold (raising more funds for the charity) so that others can join in the festive fun on Christmas Jumper Day this year. You could also pick up an even sillier sweater at the same time to keep an eye out in stores this week.All the money raised through woolly-wearing will help give a child living in a refugee camp clothes to keep them warm through winter, or set up a safe space to give them the chance to be children again. It could also help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support. All this, just by wearing a daft jumper – it’s a very silly way to solve some very serious problems!
Here’s my DIY pom-pom Christmas cardi project blog post
I hope you’ll join in with all the fun on Friday 16th and hop onto the christmasjumperday.org website to donate. Happy Christmas Jumper Day all!
Thanks so much Zenda, glad you like my upcycling efforts! x
Agree. That snowman’s really cute. And the cardigan in last picture look cute too Cassie.
Aw thanks Lauren, he wasn’t difficult to make & I get so many lovely comments when I wear that jumper! Have a lovely Christmas 🙂
Glad to hear it! Nothing cosier than a big festive knit, is there?! x
Love that EVERY DAY in December is Christmas Jumper day for you. I try and wear my festive jumpers whenever I can – they’re so cosy and make me feel super festive. I will most definitely be wearing one on the 16th! xx
The snowman is SO cute! I really need to try making my own Christmas jumper – it looks like so much fun!
