Use old sweater sleeves over cheap vases for winter decor. Pro: great way to upcycle old sweaters, really cute, got lots of compliments. I suggest tacking the bottom of the sweater to the vase to keep the edges neat.
*Colored ice balls* Fill balloons with water and add food coloring- red and green would be great around christmas! (be careful not to let the food coloring escape!), once frozen cut the balloons off and voila! Look like giant marbles :)
