What to Make Out of Jeans

Fun Blue Jean Recycling Craft Projects

By

I have a whole bin full of blue jeans that no longer fit anyone in my household or that have holes where you don't want them; I just can't bring myself to get rid of any of them. I do really need to reduce my inventory of blue jeans though, so I figured crafting with them was a great way to use them up.

Check out all of these blue jean crafts and then submit your own. If you make this craft, make sure you send in a photo so it can be posted here.
