Winter Sweater Bowl with Bling!

It’s Whimsical Wednesday!

Okay, I swear this is the LAST crafty post about sweaters…I think.  
I just can’t help myself… I LOVE the cable knit sweater look during these winter months!
If you missed my other Cable Knit Sweater Creations please check them out here, I think my all time favorite is still my turquoise lamp!  But this one is a close 2nd!
I know, you probably recognize the broach from my lamp… I was playing around with different ideas…I think I’m going to HL to see if

I can find some big blingy buttons.  

Oh, and do you notice something new about my photos?  I finally learned how to merge them together to make before and after shots and how to add my webpage on them- I learned this all by myself- aren’t you proud!
I’ll be sharing how to do this on Friday in our I Heart Blogging series!
Materials Needed:
Old Sweater


Glue Gun

Glue Sticks


1. Measure and cut the sweater to fit around the bowl.

2. Use your glue gun and attach the sweater along the base of the bowl.
Note: Don’t do it on the bottom or else your bowl won’t sit flat.

3. Tuck the extra sweater into the top of the bowl and glue it down.
4. Add some bling and you’re done!
Mine now sits on my desk and holds my pens and scissors.
