Make Christmas Sweater Vases

Something cozy.  Don't you just love wrapping yourself up in a big, thick, soft wintry sweater when the season changes?! Maybe even take a little break and have a mug of you favorite hot beverage too. We aren't wrapping ourselves up in a winter sweater quite yet, but we did wrap up some cans and turned them into Christmas sweater vases!

While working with the scrap book tablet for on our birch bark candle holders, we noticed there was also scrap book paper that looked like a soft, winter white sweater in the collection. It a matter of seconds we knew we would be making sweater vases. While nothing can really replace the "real" sweater vases, these are not bad either.

To make the Christmas sweater vases from paper you will need:

Sweater print scrap book paper {Michael's Recollections brand Frosty Cabin theme}
Cans. Scissors. Tape.

Lay the can down on the paper and measure height and length to cover the can and cut to fit.
Secure cur paper to can with tape.

We stuffed the inside of the cans with some white doillies to five a more Christmas feel to the cans ans like the way part of the lace peaks out of the can.

We loves these berry stems we found  on sale. Red and white this Christmas!

We are loving our Christmas sweater vases more and more and one of these days we are going to give the real thing a try. Until than, be inspired. Get creative!

He who mocks the poor reproaches his Maker;
He who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished.

Proverbs 17:5
