5 amazing ways to upcycle old jeans

The ABC Crafts Series...J is for Jeans!

And because I love upcycling, this week's edition of the ABC Crafts Series is especially focused on great ways to upcycle those old jeans we all have at home!

5 amazing ways to upcycle old jeans

As usual I have picked a set of different projects that come with instructions and tutorials, because the point is to give you ideas that you can actually make without a lot of effort. Check them out below and have fun!

I hope you enjoyed this little list of jeans ideas! Come back next week to find out what I'll be sharing on letter K!

In case you missed previous posts, the ABC Crafts series will be covering one (or more) crafts for each letter of the alphabet during 2016. Each roundup features 5 links, grouped around the major theme. All links posted will be DIY tutorials with clear instructions and/or free patterns, so that everyone can easily replicate them.

I've created a specific page for the series, which will include links to the crafts already covered, and a list of upcoming topics. You can find the page here. If you have suggestions for any of the topics, feel free to leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I will try to include your ideas as much as possible (with proper credit)!

Happy Thursday!
