How to make a denim bracelet using upcycled jeans and wire. This is a simple project that is super cute!
I made several items with my husband’s old jeans and some old dress pants. These included a skirt with a jean top and knit bottom, a purse, a patchwork knee length skirt, and a kerchief. It’s always a fun challenge to take a particular product and see how much I can make out of it. I still had some denim remaining so I decided to make some bracelets.
I saw a tutorial for this on Pinterest a while back- unfortunately the site appears to have been sold and now it’s just a random sales site. But in the original tutorial, the author used real wire for her bracelets… what I did was just upcycle an old wire hanger… this worked great. If you want something slightly easier to bend then I’d guess the craft stores sell good wire for making jewelry.
