A Better Sweater

The cuff of an old sweater is cut and sewn to fit a glass candle holder - an oak leaf adds a natural element.

To make this, I cut off the cuff of an old sweater, made a vertical cut to open it up and wrapped it around to fit the circumference of a glass candle jar. I turned the cut cuff wrong side out and stitched the side shut - turned it right side out and slipped it over jar. I cut a thin sliver of sweater to tie a leaf to the front.

    Brilliant idea! It looks so rustic and natural, perfect for fall decorating!

    By the way, if you make a “button” for your blog that people can copy and post to their blog in the side margin, I would love to have your “button” on my blog…people need to see your wonderful ideas!

    This is a great idea but I have a question – how do you keep the cuff from unraveling?

    This is adorable. I think I’m going to go through my sweater drawer now.
