I don’t know about you, but I tend to wear my jeans until they fall apart. Even then though, I hate to throw away the fabric on them that is still good. You’d be surprised at what you can do with an old pair of jeans! Upcycled denim projects are actually one of my favorite ways to upcycle (Six Dollar Family). Granted, I say that but I also adore upcycling old towels, upcycling old sheets and I love how many upcycled milk jug projects there are. Anyhow, just because something can’t be worn anymore doesn’t mean that it isn’t useful. These 25 upcycled denim projects prove it!
What’s great about these upcycled denim projects is that most of them don’t take a huge amount of fabric. That means that you can use just about any old pair of jeans and give the fabric one last shot at being useful. Waste is a huge issue when you’re trying to live frugally and can cause you major issues in your budget if you’re not careful. By reusing what you can, you buy less. It should be common sense but a lot of the time, it simply isn’t.
25 Upcycled Denim Projects
Upcycling was something that I learned the joy of last year when we stopped buying so much and started making as much as we could ourselves. It’s one of those skills that I think every frugal person should have but unfortunately it often gets relegated to the ranks of those “crunchy” people. Well call me crunchy but these ypcycled denim projects? Simply amazing!
