Who doesn’t love a great pair of jeans? I certainly do. And I’m all about reusing, recycling, repurposing and upcycling!
And isn’t it heartbreaking when those jeans don’t fit anymore or get stained? Well, instead of just tossing them out, why not use your crafting skills and recycle those jeans instead?
There are tons of ways to upcycle or recycle denim jeans and give them new life. You can make anything from bracelets to potholders, skirts, aprons and baskets. Here are 12 Denim Craft Project ideas to get you started.
