  • cute for a vase or wine cozy, but I would be very careful on the candle things that are being shown in the picture.

    You are assuming those are real candles. There are now artificial candles that look real. The sweater decoration can only add warmth to the flicker of light from an artificial candle. Give us a little credit for not being fire bugs in our decorating.

    Very cozy and adds such winter fun! Especially those really bright ones that you really only wore -because-...Great idea. Do they need to be lightly glued on to glass vase? Or...just tight enough to stay put?

  • Loraine Mullins Challis, ID
    would be nice to gift these, I am sure we could find additional uses for them.

    you can also cut off the hem and make headbands for the winter. the sleeves can be sewn shut/be used for that extra pair of socks under your boots. most of the sweaters have really long sleeves so cut them shorter/little ones can use them as sweaters

    What a great idea!
