I told you all about the sweater and vase project the other day……..Sweater Repurposed

So today I going to tell you about what became of those 2 sleeves!!! You know I had to make something with them right??!?! I was inspired by this article in County Living….Recycled sweater crafts…

Here is what one of the sleeves from that cable knit sweater looks like today….

Super cute right!! I had a mason jar and I had a sleeve….and some pencils of course! All you need is a glue gun to make it happen!
Take a mason jar and put it through the sleeve that you have cut off your sweater.
Flip the jar over and glue the sleeve to the bottom of the mason jar.
Flip up right and glue the inside of the jar, pressing the sleeve to the jar to adhere.
Viola! You have a handy pencil,pen,flower,scissor…whatever holder!
