Six Easy Ways to Upcycle a Sweater

Winter is definitely here and it's time for my favorites...sweaters, hot chocolate and snow days! And... it's time to add that warm and cozy feeling to my décor as well! The easiest and least expensive way to do that? Gather up your favorite old sweaters or hit the thrift store and you have almost all that you need! Here are my favorite six ways to upcycle sweaters!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Sweater Flowers...also made from sweaters! You will find the directions for these felted wool flowers HERE. Be sure to check out the tutorial for the BURLAP FLOWERS as well.

Of course, you will want to include a SWEATER PILLOW in your winter décor! It doesn't get much easier...or snugglier... than this!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Stocking PillowDid you know that you can upcycle sweaters to create Christmas stockings? I added a few small ones to my POTTERY BARN INSPIRED STOCKING PILLOW. Or by creating mittens you could give the pillow a life beyond Christmas!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy Sweater PumpkinsAnd here's one you might want to save for EASY SWEATER PUMPKINS! They require only minimal sewing and last from year to year unlike real pumpkins!

  1. Thank you for this. I saved two of my husband's sweaters when he passed away, hoping to be able to do something special with them. The pillow is the answer.

  2. My favs are the mason jar sweaters and the little stockings! Perfection! Thank you for sharing! Happy Weekend. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
