DIY: Paint Splattered Cashmere Sweater

Looking to sass up an upcycle a cashmere sweater? All you need to do is take some paint and splatter it! I love metallics, but you can use any color you want. You can also do this to shoes, boot, sweats or anything you wish to upcycle and give a trendy edge. This craft couldn’t be easier and it’s a great way to breath life back into a piece of clothing that you might otherwise be done with.

Upcycle your cashmere with splatter paint.
Use a sweater or any knit that you need to give a makeover. This is a favorite cashmere sweater of mine, but lightly stained. It was time for the trash or an upcycle.
