Cool use of upcycled sweater - felt the sweater and cut a long strip that's wide Valk Chuah center and tapers to both ends. thread it with something sturdy (maybe upholstery thread) and bead the rest of the length.
DIY: Glass jar of your size/shape, Colorfill (found at Michael's), Ribbon, Any sort of decoration you'd like to add to it. I loved these small flowers because the top of my jewelry box has decoration kind of like it. Scissors & a hot glue gun. Have fun!
