The holidays are over, and whether you bought an ugly sweater for a theme party or received one as a gift from your well-meaning grandparents, you’re probably stuck with a bunch. But instead of shoving them into your closet until the holidays roll around again, we’ve come up with fun ways to repurpose them into items you can use again and again!
1. Pocket scarf
We all need a scarf for walking to and from class in the winter temps, and this one even has perfectly-placed pockets to keep your hands warm, or for you to slip your phone into for easy access!

3. Warm beanie
