Even though nobody likes to talk about it, at one point or another we have all grown out of our favorite pair of jeans. Whether this is from losing a few pounds (not me) or gaining a few (definitely me), these jeans have continued to collect dust as we have let our jean collection grow. Mine kind of sit shamefully in the back of my drawer, forcing me to feel regret over all the sweets I let myself devour that day. Anyway, instead of letting these wonderful denim beauties go to waste, why don’t we try doing some green crafting with them instead?
You heard me correctly! We are going to re-purpose those jeans that “shrunk in the wash” and make some gorgeous denim crafts that will easily become the cutest DIY crafts you have ever made. Now, you can make your old jeans crazy multi-purposeful! Let them become a thrifty DIY gift or some completely unique home decor. Personally, while I totally love gift giving, I feel that the less I have to spend the better for my budget, thus leading me to crafting. These denim crafts are going to save you so much money and leave all your friends talking about how creative you are.
Unexpected crafting ideas are the best ideas to blow someone’s mind. Even if you aren’t presenting a present to someone, they can walk in your home and be like, “Oh, nice centerpiece,” and then you get to throw back at them the “Thanks, I made it” line, complete with an effortless hair flip. On a serious note, let your recycled jeans come to some good use. These denim craft projects are going to be fantastic for sprucing up your home, your jewelry collection, or even just your crafting skills in general.
