The air gets colder and the time for wool sweaters and ingel has begun. What is greater than to cuddle up by candlelight in a blanket? Maybe a candle holder with its own blanket? For all you upcycling-friends out there I made this tutorial on how to make these candleholders from a soda bottle and an old sweater.
Material and tools
Soda bottles, a wool sweater or a cardigan, two buttons and everything for sewing.
If you do not want to use ready-made glasses, you can read HERE how to cut bottles to glasses yourself.
As fabric I used the waistband of an old cardigan, from which I first cut out a rectangle.
Next, I folded the edges of the rectangle to the inside and stitched them down with a zig-zag stitch and a sewing machine needle for stretch fabrics.
Now I wrapped the fabric on the right side around the glass and closely pinned it to determine the required length of my wool strip. Then I sewed the fabric at the mark, cut off the excess fabric and turned the wool again to the left side.
All that now remains is to sew on the buttons by hand and to find a nice place for these cozy fall decoration.
