Re-Purposed Jean Denim Christmas Tree Ornaments
Later I mentioned my plans to a friend who informed me that the Salvation Army store had 49 cent Mondays so I should just wait until then.
This is a reasonably easy project and you may have some jeans ready for a new use on hand.
What I did first was take and cut the pant legs into sections (originally, as mentioned for bookmarks). Shown in this photo the seams were also cut out from some. Above two pieces were glued together. You can also take one piece apply the adhesive and fold the denim in half.
If you sew,great . Stuff I sew doesn't stay together long. I now use Locktite brand spray adhesive.
When you apply the adhesive, do that on another surface, the overspray stays tacky for a long time.
There are numerous ways to embellish the denim . I am going to share 2
You can look up the post by http://www.pillarboxblue.com/upcycled-denim-gift-tag/ here on HT as well for a nice idea for using denim.
I only painted on one side of the denim.
The pill bottle ornaments seen are featured in another post here on Hometalk be sure to check it out if you haven't already.
I'm glad you stopped by. Hope this provided you with ideas on how you can use up a pair of old or thrift store jeans.
Would enjoy your stopping over at my website as well to check things out. Good Crafting.

Another idea would be to take the jeans- cut in rectangles with a liner. decorate outside and sew a cord. Cute Christmas or other idea purse or cell phone holder. Not my idea... I bought a "cell phone holder " in Hungary with embroidered beadwork decorating it. Gets lots of compliments
