Sweater Candle Holder {for a modern fall centerpiece}

 My Fall Centerpiece~ Last week you got to see some great fall table inspiration when I linked up with 4 others to show off our fall tables.  I showed you how I mixed the warm tones of fall with the modern decor of my home and I have to say this is the first year where I am totally in love with it!  Anyway, for my fall centerpiece I used sweaters to add texture and today I’m going to show you how simple it was!
Fall Centerpiece Sweater Candle Holders
Here’s how I did it…

I had this old sweater that I loved (which is why after so many years of not even wearing it, it was still in my closet.)  This is such a better use for it because I get to enjoy it all over again!  And it was so simple.  I simply cut the sleeves at different heights depending on the height of the candle holder. Then slipped the tube around the base of each glass candle holder.  I didn’t glue them or anything because I use these candle holders year round.

 The end result is this modern centerpiece that has some unexpected textures.  How cool is that?  So what do you think?  Are you ready for fall?
