Denim Jeans Rag Wreath & Flowers

Tea & Honey Designs
by Tea & Honey Designs
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!
