sweet sweater... trees!

thrifting, junking, repurposed, upcycled, reused, home decor, Chrismtas decor, sweater trees
yep, i found something ELSE to use sweaters for!
( no, this isn't my original idea - i've seen some really darling colorful ones on the 'net! )
but this is ME, queen of sweaterdom, so i had to try to make my own versions of them...
and i like the simple, warm look!

'continue reading' for this super-simple holiday & winter decor project
made with thrifted / upcycled sweaters...

making them is a BREEZE... 

1. cut triangle shapes out of plain poster board (Dollar Tree)
2. cut triangle shapes out of thrifted sweaters. 
3. hot glue sweater pieces onto poster board pieces, wrapping over the edges.
4. hot glue something to the back of each tree, at the base, to hold the tree up...
you can 'just' see a peek of glass jar on the left side one above.
anything would work - wood scraps or blocks, tin cans, glass jars, miscellaneous junk!!!

that's it. seriously, everyone, this is a five minute project!
and if you used tacky glue or a good glue stick, KIDS can do this one.

easy. cozy. warm. and it will work well into winter!
that's my kind of decor.

( yeah, there's another kind of tree in these photos... that's coming up in my next post! )

UPDATE!
i played around today and came up with another kind of sweater tree!
check out my new ones here
