After recently pulling out my warmer weather clothes, I stumbled upon some sweaters that had seen better days. Rather than tossing them into the donation pill or the trash I decided to repurpose my old sweaters and incorporate them into our home decor this winter season.

You can simply add sweater material in your throw pillows and blankets in a living room or bedroom. Here are some of my favorites I found out in stores now.

Sweater Home Decor Tip # 3-5: DIY Home Decor (Vase, Candleholder and Lamp Shade)

While the first two sweater home decor tips involve spending some money to create this look, I promised a little DIY Project, so here it is. Check out how I used just one neutral colored sweater to create three different DIY home decor projects. Here is what you’ll need:

  • An old sweater
  • Glass Vase
  • Glass Candleholder
  • Lampshade (Preferably a Drum Shade)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Twine or Rope
  • Pinecones
