Gather up your old and thrift store sweaters. It is time to recycle them into fall decor. Cut them up, add rubber bands and some hot glue. Instant pumpkin -- no sewing required! Perfect for your fall decor and they can be made in a variety of colors and styles. I personally love my white ones the best but I made some more colorful ones also. The striped one is oh so cute! These particular ones are large and use the body of the sweater. But you can also make them small by using the sweater sleeves. Nothing goes to waste at The Country Chic Cottage! This is a great way to use up sweaters you do not want anymore. No reason to sell them or haul them to the Goodwill -- recycle them into something new!
