Recycled Sweater Vase

This was one of my favorite sweaters. I had it for years but it started to unravel and couldn't be fixed. The yarn is too pretty to throw away so I used one of the sleeves to make this sweater vase just in time for Valentine's Day. #ValentinesDay

    did you use starch to make the vase stand up ? I think this is really romantic way to spice up a bedroom... absolutely love it

    So pretty and clever,,, am going to use this idea. Have also used old sleeves cut off to wrap items I did not want to get scratched for a craft sale. They were not pretty ones,, just sweat shirts or whatever,, so I really love this idea.

    Melody M I used tiny adhesive glue dots to hold up the sleeve. Thanks!

    ohh yeah.. didnt think of them... great ideal ... i would have just sprayed them with a heavy starch and let them dry ... you would always have a vase that way... They are still cute and romantic... You did a great job on them ...(did you sew the bottom
