The Best Repurposed Denim Christmas Decorations

Cool and Unique Upcycled Denim Christmas Decorations

When you think of the colours of Christmas, indigo may not be the top of the list. However, I still think that you can make some pretty cool and unique denim Christmas decorations from a pair of old jeans.
My favrouite part of Christmas is actually all the preparation, the decorating, cooking and especially the crafting. I love to fill my home with Christmas decorations that I have made. Each year I love to craft something new to add to them. As I love to upcycle my old jeans I thought it would be fun to find some cool and unique denim Christmas decorations.
This is a round up of my favourite denim Christmas decorations, some I’ve crafted myself and others I have found.

  7. Denim Hearts 2 Ways- Pillarboxblue
    My in-laws are from Norway and like many other Northern European countries, hearts form an important part of their Christmas decorations. There is a tutorial here of 2 different types of heart denim Christmas decorations. The smaller padded ones can be hung on the tree and the larger wire ones as wreath.
    (They also make a good Valentine’s decoration of course!)

  14. Denim Rustic Stars – Pillarboxblue
    No Christmas decorations are complete without a star, whether it is on the top of the tree or elsewhere. These star denim Christmas decorations, certainly add a rustic element to the festive decorations.
    Make rustic stars to decorate your home. They can be made from recycled jeans or burlap on a simple wireframe. A great upcycled Christmas decoration.

  16. Monogrammed denim gift tags- Pillarboxblue
    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.
