We see a lot of these in stores like Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware, but they come with some pretty hefty price tags. That’s the best thing about DIY projects…you can save a bunch of money by making the same things for next to nothing!
I’m sure that I’m not the only person who hangs onto old sweaters, and I was glad that I hadn’t gotten rid of them, since I ran across this clever tutorial for turning them into some great looking sofa pillows!
If you don’t have any sweaters you want to repurpose the average price of them at a thrift store is $1 to $5 a pop. The men’s cashmere sweater section in a thrift shop is a goldmine! Not only are these great to wear as-is, but these once pricey luxury pieces are perfect for repurposing into new items for yourself, your family, and your home.
What to do with them? Use them to cover throw pillows! After making these easy throw pillows you can even embellish them with rosettes from the left over sweater scraps, or add some good looking leather buttons to the pillow. It sure does make them handsome and rich looking!
I’ve also seen people cover wooden bracelets with sweater material and you can do that with the leftover scraps from your pillows. You can see them on Pinterest for ideas!
Watch how this gal with DIY scoop makes these great looking sweater pillows in her step by step tutorial and go get those sweaters you’re not wearing any more! This is a super easy project.
