So you know that I had some leftover sweater from Tuesday’s post. I instantly knew what I wanted to do…Sweaters for my candles. As Kevin said, “Because candles get cold?” Yep exactly.
I had seen similar ones in one of my magazines, and thought it looked pretty easy. Plus I have a ton of glass candle holders. As I was thinking through this project, I also remembered a sock I had that would work.
First I decided on which candle holders I wanted to use. I visualized a group of them together so that was how I chose.
I worked on the sock first.
I decided which part of the sweater I wanted to use, measured it by wrapping it around the glass, and then cut and made adjustments. I knew I wanted to use the part with buttons.
I also had 2 small tea lights. Same thing, just wrap it around and sew.
Here are my warm little candles…
The one with the buttons is my fave. I love the shape of it. Also, you can just slip these on and off so you can use the candle holders for other things. I love them, and will leave them up all winter.
I like them grouped together, and here they are, all a glow.
I was glad I threw the sock in there for the different texture. Kevin was glad Mona isn’t wearing a sweater.
If you don’t want to cut up a sweater you could probably go find one somewhere, Goodwill I bet would have a ton!
