Sweater Lamp

A lamp revamp.
The blue and white lamps in our family room 
got a makeover for Christmas.
I used an old red sweater and just 
cut off the sleeves.
  I removed the lamp shade and slipped the
 sleeve over the lamp with the widest part
 at the base tucking the bottom end under
 and folding the top cuff down.
I even used the body of the red sweater to
 cover the pillow in Lucy's basket. 
Nothing was wasted!
I would love to find one with Christmas 
colors or a Christmas pattern. I'll be on the 
hunt for another sweater in a thrift shop.
I bet I can find a holiday sweater for a dollar.
So go rummage thru your closet 
and see what you find.
A great way to recycle old sweaters!



  1. What a great idea. Perfect for Christmas.

  2. How clever! I would never have thought of this. A slipcover for a lamp -- the whole idea opens up a world of possibilities. I have done it to shades, but -- actually I just love this idea!

  3. Incredible...always something up your sleeve.

  4. So cute! Love your Longaberger pine cone holder too!

  5. Great idea! I cover a couple of my lamps with gold lamee bags at Christmas but the sweater idea is even better!

  6. I really like this idea, now I have to look for some old sweaters:)

  7. My heart almost stopped for a moment when I briefly thought you might have painted over that lamp!! :) This is such a good idea, love it!

  8. What a great way to upcycle!
    Thanks Rita!


  9. Seen this done with candles but never with a lamp. Love it.

  10. Thank you for linking up to my party. I would have never guessed that was transformed with a sweater. How creative is that? Fab idea!

  11. That is the best idea! I gave all my Christmas sweaters to GW! Now, I might have to go buy one back:):)

  12. Love the reds for winter. And when you're done with it, you can go back to the cool whites again. In Spring. Easy and whimsical. Nicely done.
