Hi everyone! Are you sick of my orange sweater projects yet? So far I’ve brought you an autumn banner, irresistable pumpkins, and some darling hang tags. It was a 1 sweater, 3 project series, but then my sister came along with some empty coffee cans and that got me thinking: “…how about wrapping a can with some left-over orange sweater…and how about adding a jack o’lantern face?” Who knew one thrifted sweater could be used to create so many different fall and Halloween-themed decorations?!
Kinda cute, right? And perfect for holding Halloween candy, whether to hand out to trick or treaters or to give a child, perhaps a grand-child, filled with some special goodies (healthy or otherwise) from grandma.
Cut a piece of sweater to fit your can, making it about an inch longer than necessary to allow for overlapping when gluing. (NOTE: I washed this sweater by hand in really hot water, then dried it in the drier before cutting it for my projects. This process helped fuse the fibers together to discourage fraying.)
What creative fall projects have you whipped up?
