I was inspired to make some wintery decor for my Christmas table this year by a magazine article I read last year (I can't recall which one) that showed wonderful ways to recycle old sweaters.
I went to my local thrift store and bought a pink sweater for $1.00 and went to work.
I cut one of the cuffs off and used it to cover a plain small glass jar. Just insert a candle and achieve instant cozy charm. With the rest of the sleeve, I covered up a vase to display paper roses.
Then, with the other sleeve, I cut it into a narrow band and slipped a napkin inside...sweet and simple. I just added a fleur-de-lis pin (available at the shop soon) and that's it.
Here's what the sweater candleholder looks like lit up at night..pretty, huh.
Lastly, I wanted to show you these fabulous faux candles I bought at Target. The outside of the candles are made with real wax and the inside features an led light that flickers just like a real candle...love it!
Have a wonderful day...Andrea
P.S. The faux candles come plain...the paper numbers I added.
