Sweater Vases

Snuggling up in your favorite sweater by the fire inspired by new mantle display!
My latest creation had me working on
"up-cycling" sweaters by wrapping them around glass containers.
 I bought a total of three sweaters at three different thrift shops. 
(I was washing two of them when I took this picture).
I grabbed some vases, glass containers and a couple jars and starting playing around.
 For the majority of them I just cut the sleeve off and 
used doubled sided tape on the bottoms and inside to keep the sweaters in place. 
I love this idea because it's not permanent. I can take the sweaters off when I'm tired of this look.
 I used some dried flowers to fill one vase. A candle in another. 

And wrapped a couple books with some white linen paper and tied it up with some string.
 After I wrapped all my glass containers, I decided to make a couple pillows!
I'm lovin' this warm cozy look for winter!


  1. Love your vases! I just made some of my own and will be sharing them next week. I did not permanently adhere mine either. Great minds think alike!

  2. Chessa, I saw these on Pinterest and loved them. I want to do this also, but dont have a Neutral color. I just started a new blog hop and would love for you to come over and link up your post or any social media.
