Creating Old Jeans Projects to Upcycle, Recycle and Give Life to Old Denim

Rounding Up Old Jeans Projects - Upcycle CraftsI’ve been hoarding old, worn out denim just so I could use them for old jeans projects like the ones I’ve gathered below.

I’ve pilled up soooo many that now it’s time to get them out of the closet and start working on one of these upcycle projects. But like so many of crafts I’m falling in love with, I’m having a hard time deciding which one to start with.

My first thought was turning an old pair of jeans into a maxi skirt. I even found a beautiful tiered skirt of purple velvet and sating that lost it’s elastic. I see it taking on new life with the jeans top for an eclectic Boho look.

But…

Then I’ve been adding some red, white and blue patriotic crafts to the house and though creating a wreath for the front door with denim strips mixed with red banana strips.

But…

And therein lies the problem. I want to do all of these old jean projects. So, while I mull over what I want to start with, why don’t you give these ideas a look. Especially if you’ve been hoarding old denim like me.
