From the blogger: "Did you know that it is so simple to make feathers out of scraps of denim? Basically, it is just about fraying the denim by pulling out the threads one by one. If you pull out all the white threads, you will end up with an indigo feather. And if you pull out all the blue threads, you will end up with a white feather. I used some twine for the spine of my denim feathers. They were then hung from a lovely driftwood branch to make a gorgeous wall hanging."

Materials List

  • Scraps of denim from old jeans
  • Colored twine
  • Branch
  • Glue
  • Thumb tacks
  • Small wooden beads

More Crafty Ideas For You

If you're someone who loves working with recycled materials and enjoys the challenge of turning old items into something new and beautiful, we have a few craft project ideas that we think you'll love.

One idea is to create a denim feather wall hanging using old denim jeans. Cut the denim into feather shapes and arrange them in a beautiful pattern on a wooden hoop or embroidery hoop. Add some embellishments like beads or sequins for extra sparkle. This project is perfect for someone who enjoys working with fabric and wants to create a unique piece of wall art for their home.

Another great idea for a project that uses recycled denim is to make a denim quilt. Cut squares or rectangles from old jeans and piece them together to create a cozy and rustic quilt. You can play around with different shades of denim and add in other fabrics for a more eclectic look. This project is perfect for someone who enjoys sewing and wants a large-scale project to work on.

For a smaller project that still makes a big impact, consider making denim coasters. Cut circles from old jeans and add a layer of cork or felt to the back for extra durability. These coasters are not only functional but also stylish and perfect for adding a touch of denim decor to your home. This project is great for someone who wants a quick and easy craft that also helps reduce waste.

We hope these ideas inspire you to get creative with your recycled denim and try out some new craft projects!

This project is so cute! I have some empty wall space in my living room that could use a project like this -- thanks for sharing!

Love this upcycle idea! I definitely have worn out pairs of jeans that would be great for this project.

What a great way to recycle an old pair of jeans or a jean jacket (Yes, they still exist. I have two. You just dont see them much anymore.) I love finding new ways to make feathers for my projects, and this gives me so many ideas. Cutting your feather templates out along a thin seam would help make the feather more resistant to shredding straight across if the glue breaks down over time.
