Old Sweater into Leg Warmers

DIY leg warmers made out of a sweater 
I'm so excited to share this mini DIY leg warmers project with you because it is so easy, it took me all of 30 seconds!

Projects to do with an old sweater
Inspiration: This old short sweater with stains.

So, project #1 with the sweater involved chopping off the sleeves and putting them on my legs. Make perfect sense of course. (Since the bottom of the sleeve is already finished, I wear that part on the top and don't worry about the bottom since that will be covered by the boot anyway.)

Okay, I don't walk around like this...but don't you love my Christmas socks? :) I might recommend wearing these leg warmers only when you plan on keeping your boots on. haha

Yay for leg warmers that look so cute with my boots!

(Yes, I cropped my head out on purpose. I promise it looks cuter this way)

What else should I make with my sweater??
