Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
Look what I made! Well...actually I didn't make it, but I put it together. I saw this idea in a magazine and thought it was so cute and wanted to make one!
I just had to wait until I had an old sweater to cut up and I finally did. The other day I pulled this green sweater out of my closet and realized how balled up and worn it was and decided to throw it away, but then I remember the candle sweater idea! You simply take a pair of scissors and cut the cuff off about 6 inches up on the sleeve....
...roll up the cuff...
...slide it on your candle...
...and pull it up!
Some people probably stitch the bottom or glue it to stay put, but I just tucked it under and it stayed perfectly.
Isn't that so cute!
You could do these in any size or color. Wouldn't it be cute to have black and orange ones for Halloween or cute and cozy cream and oatmeal colored ones for a cold wintry night? The possibilities are endless. So, next time you have an old sweater you are throwing away, save that sleeve!!!!
Now.....what do I do with the rest of the sweater? Come back tomorrow to see how I up-cycled it!
