To start off, take your old sweater. Slip the vase that you want to use through the sleeve, having the top part of the vase meet the top part of the sleeve and then mark where the vase ends on the sleeve. Take the vase out and the cut the sleeve at the mark.
Now, most sweaters have a narrow sleeve so they will fit most vases, but this sweater had a crazy narrowing sleeve (big to small), that wouldn't work for any of my vases. So, I just sent it through my sewing machine to make it all one width, and then cut off the excess fabric.
To secure the sweater to the vase, (if you need to. I found that I didn't need to do this on most of my vases), use some hot glue or double sided tape.
Place the double sided tape on the bottle and top edges of the vase and press the sweater on it.
Super easy and simple! And it brings the perfect amount of warmth to a space even without using much color :) Or even more warmth and texture if you are not like me and are using color ;) lol
