What To Do With Old Jeans

Got an old pair of jeans and wondering what you are going to do with them? Before you throw them out, we want you to know that there are plenty of cool things that you can do to your old jeans. Are you ready? Here are some of the old jeans hacks that you should know about:

Denim Wreath

Turn old denim into a wreath.

Since Christmas is just around the corner, why don’t you turn your jeans into a wreath? Shred your old denim then use it to create your very own denim wreath.

Denim Pillow

Turn it into a pillow case.

Remove both legs and open up the seam to create two rectangles of the same size. Place one on top of the pillow and one under then sew the sides together and you’ve got a new pillow case.

Denim Apron

Transform it to an apron.

Cut your old denim skirt or denim dungri open. Attach the other fabric below the other.You can add a string of denim on the neck part and you can now cook with your denim apron.

Denim Corsage

Make a flower corsage out of it.

Cut 5 squares out of your denim with the following sizes: 2 pieces of 3.5”, 3”, 2.75” and 2.5”. Cut flower shapes from the squares. Slack it all together, large to small then sew a large bead in the middle.

Denim Purse

Turn it into a purse.

Cut out the small coin pocket out of your jeans, including the waistband. Use the waistband as a flap and you are good to go!

Denim Skirt

Convert it into a denim skirt with lace.

Cut the upper portion of your denim pants, just below the zipper line. Sew embroidered lace fabric into the bottom part of the denim. Add one to two layers of lace more to achieve the right length.

Denim Basket

Create a weave denim basket out of it.

You can use denim scraps to weave a basket that is entirely made of denim. It can be a cool fruit basket or if it is tall enough, a basket for holding umbrellas.

Denim Placemats

Convert it into denim placemats.

Cut denim using the no-sew placemat patterns that you can find online. These placemats are perfect as you can put the silverware in the denim pocket and the napkin in the loops.

Denim Pot Holder

Transform it into pot holders.

Cut off a circular shape in the pocket area. Sew a thin strip of fabric into the edges of the denim and create a loop on top.

Denim Bookmark

Make a denim heart bookmark.

Cut out two small heart shapes from the denim. Sew the bottom part of the hearts together and you now have a corner book mark.
