Gift Idea #14 - Blue Jean Frames

25 Days of Gifts

#34 - Blue Jean Frames

Hey Everyone!

I hope you've had a great week!

Today I have a fun project to share which incorporates one of my favorite articles of clothing...Blue Jeans!! Just gotta love the comfortable feeling you get when you slip your favorite pair on :)

Here you go ~


Obviously I started with a square frame and covered it with denim - for these I actually bought new denim because they were quite large and I wanted them to look the same. Old jeans would be perfect for it though...I've actually got 3 pairs (various shades) in a pile waiting to be used for just this purpose!

Adhere the denim to the frame using your favorite adhesive, decorate and you're all set. I used pinks and purples for these but denim is such a versatile starting point that your project could go in many directions for both girls and guys!



Take care everyone ~ have a great weekend and be sure to keep checking back as we work our way through 25 days of gifts!

Also, I wanted to thank everyone for your wonderful posts and e-mails about the gifts posted so far :) I'm so glad that you're enjoying the ideas!



  1. Ahhhh you are one brilliant lady. I have a bag filled with jeans I have wore out at work and have been waiting for some fun wear I can use them :) This is it. :) You wouldn't happen to have about 15 other useful things to do with them would ya?? :) Thanks again for your hard work.

  2. Roni...those are so darn cute! I need to know how you adhered the denim though. Do you lap it over the back or just adhere to the flat front of the frame? I have 2 young nieces, aged 7 and 9 would go nuts over these!

  3. OK Im back :) I was taking another look. Did you sew those stitches or are they faux?


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
