I have a big basket full of old blue jeans. Many of them have been cut and torn, some by the kids and some by me for craft projects such as this one. This uses a very small amount, but I thought it was fun and actually I really like the way it looks! Would be pretty cool enlarged into bracelet size too, but for now we’ll go over how to make this denim beaded ring.
Seed beads are tiny and can be a bit difficult to work with. My advice is to leave them in a plastic bag and poke your cord or needle into the bag to pick up the beads. That’s a much easier method than trying to pick them up and thread them on individually.
This ring is really easy. Fray a strip of denim and sew on some seed beads. That’s pretty much it!
If you need another wearable idea for recycling denim, how about these colorful recycled denim beads?
