Jeans and Lace Bracelet

You can find me over at The Pinning Mama sharing a full tutorial of how to make this pretty bracelet from an old pair of jeans and a little lace and ribbon.
It's really easy and perfect for all this beautiful spring weather we are going to be getting soon! 
You could easily adapt the basic idea too and make a completely unique bracelet depending on what trims you use. I'm definitely making another as soon as another pair of jeans rips where it shouldn't!

  3. That's really pretty.. I'm into lace and making arm wear too - having a lot of fun. Wish I had some pink denim now though!

    1. I did love my pink jeans! I'm definitely trying this idea out on blue jeans next though, I think it will work just as well.

    1. Thanks Ang, I don't normally go for the shabby chic look much but when it comes to re purposing denim it seems to go so well.

    1. Thanks Linda, it was pretty quick to make once I got started. You can ad any kind of trim that you have, or just leave it plain. If you do make one do stop by and leave a link so we can all have a peek.
