Jeans are (in my opinion) a perfect garment. They are resistant, comfortable, durable … I am sure that if you like jeans, you have a few accumulated in the closet that you no longer wear but don’t want to dump! But just because jeans are no longer part of our outfit, it does not mean that we can no longer use them. As we know, everything is recycled nowadays, even the weirdest things. So, let’s check out how your unwanted denim can be recycled creatively!

Original Cushions

Make your own cushion for that salt armchair or that rocking chair you have in a particular corner of your home. This idea can be carried out in different ways; our favorite is to make a mosaic creating an original and unique drawing. You will have to buy padding or use an old cushion that you have at home and sew the cowboy pieces to each other until you complete the cover.
