Recently, I was asked by the wonderful folks at Hometalk to curate a Board to be featured in one of their weekly email posts. The topic I was given was “Repurposed Sweaters”, which I love working with, so I happily obliged, and put together a collection of cool ways to repurpose a sweater. I tried to use a lot of variation to showcase different projects and syles. For those of you not familiar with Hometalk.com, it’s sort of like Pinterest, but way more interactive and fun. Plus, they send out daily and weekly email updates on projects and decorating ideas. Amazing site for inspiration for projects large and small 🙂
For this blog post (and since I love working with sweaters), I’m also going to include a project I did last fall.
I simply bought 3 vases from the Dollar Tree in varying heights, along with tea light holders. Each were $1.25. I had my daughter collect as many acorns as she could carry, and added them to the vases. The sweater parts are simply the cut up arms of a sweater, that were pulled on to the vases. And that’s it.
Easiest project ever!
I had this as a centrepiece on my Thanksgiving and Christmas tablescapes. It’s perfect for all cooler months, since it’s gives off a warm cozy feeling.
I considered painting the acorns a gold colour, but opted to keep them natural looking.
I added the squirrel, since he matches the acorn/wintery cozy theme.
That’s it for now. Thanks so much for checking out my blog, and THANK YOU to Hometalk for allowing me the opportunity to curate a board to be featured. I’ll be back on Saturday with a new post. See you then.
