Spring it here!!! It’s time to put away all those winter sweaters, or in my world upcycle them! Upcycling is taking something old and repurposing it into something new. As you may (or may not) know, I love promoting Etsy handmade sellers because I respect their craft and I just think it’s amazing all the ideas that these talented folks come up with. Here are a few of my favorite items for sale that are currently on Etsy. All of them are hand-crafted from upcycled sweaters… so awesome AND eco-chic (hey, that’s a new term I am officially coining today)!
These cupcake pin cushions made out of felted wool sweaters are a must have for every crafter. Complete with a cherry on top, it doubles as an ornament too!
Spring also means Spring cleaning and organizing! Check out these adorable upcycled hangers made from wool and cashmere by Folk City. What a great idea!
I don’t care how nice it is outside, every cup of coffee needs this eco-friendly coffee cup cozy made out of vintage upcycled sweaters.
Display your Spring flowers in this clever sweater vase made out of the sleeve of a vintage sweater.
And last but not least, just in time for Easter, the Easter bunny is bound to fill up this eco-friendly sweater Easter basket full of goodies made by Seasons of Wool.
