Creativity with Old Sweaters

At the recent trip to the Vintage Marketplace, one of the fun things to see was how creative artists turned old items into new uses. The stack of old tea cups and plates into a candle holder, the printed insides of books sprinkled with glitter and mounted to candle holders to be Christmas trees, and old sweaters tied and embellished to find a new life as an ornament. I kept myself mostly to just looking, but I did grab these little sweater guys. The snowman is living on our tree, but the big button ball went to a dear friend as part of her holiday gift. The next time I have an old sweater, I just might have to make a few of these to add to our decor.
