If you have a ripped pair of jeans or an old pair that has more holes than trouser leg, why not turn them into something else. What we have here are ten of the very best things you can do with a pair of old jeans. So scissors at the ready, let’s get making…
Top 10 Best Uses For an Old Pair of Jeans
10 – Lamp
I am not sure how to even start turning a pair of jeans into a lamp, but I love the idea. But I might worry that the jeans didn’t take the heat of the lamp too well.
9 – Book Cover
Once again there is no making guide, but I would imagine if you looked about YouTube enough you would soon find one. This would also make a good gift to give someone as well.
8 – Pouffe
That pair of jeans you have in the back of the draw won’t turn into a new pair overnight, so why not turn them into a Pouffee overnight instead! No making guide on how to do it, but it looks amazing!
7 – Cat Bed
This is handy if you are a cat or small dog owner. As long as the insides were soft I am sure the pet will love it. And it will look nice on the floor as well.
6 – Shoes
Repurposing anything into a pair of shoes takes some skill, but a pair of jeans turned into a pair of shoes will make even more skill. But if you are talented enough to do this good luck!
5 – Storage Box
Clever, amazing and very creative. Those are just a few of the words I would use to describe this repurposed jeans storage box. As an extra point worth noting is the pocket used to store the scissors that were presumably used to make it in the first place!
4 – Toys
Making kids toys of fabrics like denim not only makes for good recycling but also makes for good gifts to give a charity or sell and make money for charity. Or maybe just make them for yourself!
3 – Carpet
This house owner seems to have had a lot of old jeans laying around. Not only did they make a whole rug, but a pouffe and cushions as well! How many pairs of jeans could one person own?
2 – Zippered Bag
If you are the type of person who carries a gym bag why not save money getting a new one when you could turn an old pair of jeans into this. Best of all is the step by step guide to making it as well that you can join along within the link.
1 – Sofa
Anyone who can turn a few pairs of denim jeans into a sofa gets my creative respect. Not only is this fantastic recycling, but it looks simply amazing as well. I think I might need quite a few old pairs of trousers to make a sofa even the bigger size of clothing I wear!
