Denim Jeans Rag Wreath & Flowers


I have PILES of my husband's ripped denim jeans. There isn't a pair he hasn't been able to destroy.

After a few years, the pile has gotten bigger and I finally decided to do something with them. I just can't throw anything away if I can make it something useful and/or beautiful.

First, I cut some pieces out to make the flowers. I treated each piece with mod podge, waited 24 hours, then shaped them into the flowers.

The remaining fabric was bleached, washed, and dried. Some areas became completely white, others still had some blue. I ripped strips approximately 7" x 1" and tied them onto a metal wreath frame, packing them tight so there would be no bald spaces.

I think the final result was worth every callous and fabric burn!

    Love the look of this wreath! Got lots of old jeans parts too! This could be put together while watching tv. Will be making one of these really soon. Great job!
