{ i spy a diy - sweater sleeve trees (& pillows too!) }

I just love a cute, inexpensive Christmas decor idea, and this one is a snap to make.

All you need is some unwanted or thrift store sweaters with some interesting texture, cardstock (or foam cones), scissors, and hot glue. I scored these three sweaters for 99 cents each!

To make these:

1) Form a cone out of cardstock and glue seam securely.
2) Cut off a sleeve of the sweater and pull it over cardstock cone.
3) Cut away the excess fabric and glue into place.
 Ta-da!  These look really great on a mantle.

Then use what's leftover of the sweater to make some darling, festive pillows!

Have you started decking the halls with any crafty goodness?
