Recycled Sweater Crafts: Project #2 Sweater Lampshade

This lovely recycled sweater craft was featured in the Celebrating Fall Issue and I wanted to share it here with you because it’s so lovely, practical and Green!  If you missed our first project you can find it here: Recycled Sweater Craft Project #1.  It’s so practical because you can change up your room without doing much and not to mention spend anything on it.  This Sweater Lampshade is the perfect touch to your Winter living room decor!

If you own a sweater that will slip over your lampshade without falling off then you don’t need to sew anything. Just slip it over and cut at the top and tape ends inside. Don’t you love quick home decor projects?  For sewing instructions see below:
