I love a thrift shop. Many post you see on my blog will be inspired by something that you can find at a thrift shop and recreate into something else. This trip I picked up a cable knit sweater for $2.50.
White, and in perfect condition. I had picked it up to make it into a pillow. But another idea popped into my head when I saw this vase. I bought both…spent $6.50. Would you believe it came out lookin like this?
Next, place the vase inside the “tube” of the sweater. You may need to cut away excess. Making sure you have enough to go around the whole vase—cut away what is extra.
Heat a hot glue gun up. You will start by gluing the top edge. Using the glue gun, place some gun on the inside edge of the vase and press the sweater to hold. I used the cut edge of my sweater for the bottom of the vase and the finished edge for the top.
Go around the top of the vase….gluing and holding the sweater till you reached the point where you started.
