Just in Time for Fall: Recycled Sweater Vases

I recently found this tutorial and immediately began searching for a time this week to swing by the local Goodwill for a few chunky sweaters.

Under the Table and Dreaming created these beautiful vase and candle holder covers, see the full tutorial here. Sleeves create the easiest slip-on cover, but Stephanie Lynn shares how to turn the rest of your old sweaters into creative and cozy liners as well.

Doesn’t the soft fabric make you ready for cool weather and warm fires?And how great would these be grouped on the mantel or as a centerpiece for an upcoming Fall dinner? Thank you, One Pretty Thing for sharing!

*Giveaway* from Storkie Express!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

PDB is excited to welcome Storkie Express as a new sponsor – and in honor of a new sweet little ad over in the sidebar, Storkie is hosting a $50 giveaway for a lucky reader! Storkie Express specializes in every type of invitation imaginable from baby shower invites (see a few of my favorite above) to weddings, bridal showers and save the dates (below), to graduations, moving announcements, religious ceremonies and parties!

One of the many very cool features of the site is the dynamic design capability. This allows you to mix and match color combinations and/or design elements in real-time (in addition to all of the text/layout changes you can make with our iDesign tool), to create truly unique stationery.

If you’re ready to really be on top of your game this year, check out Storkie’s selection of photo Christmas cards (now that’s what I call prior proper planning…).

In addition to a wide selection of contemporary designs, Storkie also offers classic options such as thermography or foil printing, as well as ribbons and bows, embossed elements, shimmer cardstock, pockets and wraps. And they ship super quick! Most orders print and ship within 1-2 days.
