Sweater Recycling!

Looking for something to do with your old sweaters?  Maybe they shrank, maybe they were an impulse buy.  In my case, it was on clearance for 75% off at Target, so I thought, "you can't go wrong with that".  But, oh indeed, you can- so now my sweater with the wierd double v-neck collar is a couch pillow! 
Think it's a little weird?  Pottery Barn doesn't::

So- now you can recylce your old sweaters and save yourself $37.  Yay.  Oh, but what to do with the sleeves?  Candle covers! You can get these jar candles at Wal-mart for 3.50. The sleeves will stretch right over for a cute and cozy cover.

Again, if you have any weirdness concerns, console yourself with this from Anthropologie:

This would have set you back $13.

Other things you can do with sweaters from the Country Living website:

I'm dying to try the lampshade!  Thanks for cheking out project corner with Katie:)
