Upcycled Denim Christmas Decorations my Favourite Five
Upcycled Denim Christmas Ornaments: In the past I have upcycled sweaters for Christmas decorations, such as my very popular sweater upcycled Christmas ornaments and my fabulous upcycled felt garland. However even though I love using upcycled denim in my craft and DIY projects I have yet to make any Christmas ornaments out of my old jeans. Except for my gift tags (see at the end).
If like me, you love to repurpose your old jeans then you should vist my Denim and crafts upcycled pinterest board . For a bit of fun I trawled the pinterest board and picked my 5 favourite upcycled denim Christmas decorations to share with you.
- Denim Hearts – Mrs Busy
Hearts are a really popular tree Christmas tree decoration in Northern Europe. I love how the pockets and seams of the jeans have been recycled to make these ones.
- Denim Gingerbread Man Ornament – Eastdrinkchic
Isn’t this gingerbread man just the cutest ?
- Denim Christmas Tree – UKidama
There isn’t a tutorial for this Christmas tree but I don’t think it will be difficult to work out. I love the fact that it’s made from the seams and hems of jeans, giving it a lovely textured look.
- Denim Christmas Stocking – Nancysieman
If you make these stockings with the pocket part of your jeans, then you’ll have extra hiding places for treats.
- Denim Pocket Angels – Handverkarna
Unfortunately there is no tutorial with these angels but it should be really easy to work out how to make them. All you need is some jeans pockets and denim scraps.
More denim Christmas ideas…
I know I said 5, but I’ve snuck in an extra one. My monogrammed denim gift tags. You may argue that they are a gift tag and not strictly a decoration. However I will be hanging my denim gift tags from the tree. There again I hang all sorts of ornaments from my tree, mostly homemade though.
Finally it has been pointed out to me that if I add a few extra pockets to my Denim Pocket organiser, I could turn it into an advent calendar. I’ve already made an upcycled advent calendar out of tin cans this year, but I will store away the denim pocket idea for next year.
