I am working on putting together my winter mantle and I
just do NOT want to spend any money.....
I've seen these sweater vases and candles on Pinterest and
decided to try to make some myself.....
Our local Mennonite Relief store has 50% off on Friday evenings, so I
nabbed this cable-knit sweater for only $1.50!
The only problem was that it was sleeveless......I didn't realize that this was a
problem until I went home and checked out Pinterest and realized that
people were using the SLEEVE portion of the sweater....UGH!
Time for Plan B...
I decided that I could use the bottom ribbed portion of the sweater
and just hot glue it around my vases......close enough, right?
I wasn't quite sure what to do with the bottom so I just
trimmed the sweater along the very edge of the vase and let it go.
I did start running out of sweater by the end and just pieced
together the one candle, but as long as it is angled the right way,
you can't even tell!!
Tomorrow, I'll show you the rest of my mantle....
