oh, did you think i was DONE??? LOL. never!
i'll never run out of ideas for turning sweaters into decor...
and this one, well, it's just the perfect whimsical accent for winter!

this one actually isn't made from sweaters... it's something else.
but you certainly COULD use sweaters to create something similar.
(and don't miss the 'links to previous related content' below this post for even MORE ideas!)

so, grab a cuppa' something sippable, and
continue reading to see my newest original Sweet Sweater creations!winter,sweaters,Sweet Sweater Originals,Sweet Sweater Sips,just for fun,DIY,diy decorating,re-purposed,thrifted,up-cycling,decorating,foofoo Faux Food,fun food,hot chocolate,cocoa,espresso,marshmallows,whipped cream,winter beverages,winter drinks,winter decor.
cocoa or coffee, anyone?!

two cups of cocoa (or do you call it hot chocolate?) and one of espresso
would be a cute accent on a kitchen scale, a tiered tray, or just perched on a desk
(that's where these are living right now!!)

yup. these are made using SOCKS!
because i had some tan and brown socks, and no tan and brown sweaters.
you simply roll the socks up - starting at the toe - and tuck them into mugs, cups, etc.

if your rolled socks don't sit level with the rim of the cup,
add some polyfil stuffing to the cup under the socks - to raise them up a bit.

then embellish by tucking in a 'wisp' of polyfil to look like steam,
white pom poms to look like marshmallows, a twist of fuzzy yarn as 'whipped cream',
even glitter to look like sugar sprinkles! 

and don't forget a candy cane or two for good measure...

yep, i even found some YELLOW candy canes this year!
tho i don't think the lemon flavor would taste good... they sure LOOK good!

so can we talk for *just* a minute about THAT MUG???!!!
i found it thrifting. saw it from across the shop and beelined to the shelf,
utterly amazed that i had found a SWEATER MUG!

originally, it had a red top rim - but a quick coat of yellow paint made it perfect for this project.
i never let what's available in stores limit my decorating - and neither should you!

i smile every time i look at these!
i must admit that they are a bit dangerous, though...
i've had more cups of hot chocolate than usual since i made them!!!

i hope they inspire you to create something just for fun -

    1. thank you so much, Miss Marie! i had fun making them... they really should come with a warning though: if you make them and have them within view, you'll be craving hot cocoa and coffee ALL DAY LONG!!! LOL
