What screams summer more than wearing a braided denim bracelet with pops of color in it? This project makes use of your old pair of blue jeans or scraps of denim and turns them into something new! Your new bracelet will bring fashionable fun to any summer day!

  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Colorful beads
  • Segment of an old pair of blue jeans
  • Needle, straight pin, and thread

Step 1: The Cutting

Take your blue jean segment, and cut out a long rectangle. Mine was about 11 inches long. The width doesn't matter. You will be cutting 3 long, narrow strips from this rectangle to use for the bracelet. The rest of the denim can be saved for future projects. Once you have your strips, grab one end of each and line them up with each other. After they are alined, sew the ends that you are holding together.
