Hmmm Those vases look a little chilly

I love this tutorial. It is such a wonderful way to recycle sweaters. However, I do not wear sweaters (love that Central Coast weather). So, off to the goodwill I went and found several intricate sweaters and several vases that needed covering. Got home, plugged in the hot glue gun and went to town.
These are from 3 sweaters with plenty left over.

Even prettier with candles.

The candles did not do much for the dark colored ones. Flowers may work better.


  1. Absolutely beautiful! I don't wear sweaters myself, however I do knit cables from time to time.

    Isn't Goodwilling fun? ^^

  2. Brilliant! I do use sweaters, all winter long, but this would indeed be a wonderful cabling project for leftovers!

    Thanks for tipping me off on my booboo!

  3. Hello, I just found your blog and I'm enjoying looking around. I have never seen a vase covered like this before. How creative and such a unique look it gives a vase. I'm off to watch the tutorial. Thanks for showing this.
