From the blogger: "Did you make some denim cutoff shorts this summer? I certainly did. And that is how I wound up with a small pile of leg-less jean bottoms! Tossing them made me feel guilty so it only made sense to use them for a fun, crafty purpose. Along with some pre-painted nautical wooden cutouts, this is how I re-purposed those denim bottoms into the perfect summertime door wreath. Add some grosgrain ribbon for a pop of color before hanging on your door."
Time to CompleteUnder an hour
- Styrofoam wreath
- Old denim jean fabric scraps
- Grosgrain ribbon
- Straight pins
- Hot glue gun
- Pre-painted wooden cutouts
DIY Project Instructions
Cut strips from the denim jean scraps.
Wrap the denim strips around the foam wreath and secure each strip with a straight pin.
Use a wide section of the jeans to form a large bow. Glue together and wrap a piece of ribbon around to hold in place.
Cut two additional strips of denim to form the bottom of the bow. Glue a piece of ribbon to the bottom of each piece. Secure to the wreath form with straight pins (or glue). Add the large bow on top.
Make a handful of denim rosettes. (Please see my website for how to make these easy fabric flowers.)
Glue the denim rosettes and wooden cutouts to the wreath in a layout you like best.

This nautical wreath looks so cool! I love the fresh feel of it and have not seen one quite like this! I could see making other variations of this nautical theme by gluing in real small seashells of various colors and types, or even sea horses, sea fish, sand dollars. You could also put in some sea glass here and there for some sparkle, or those glass pebbles in sea colors. Thanks for sharing a creative and pretty project.
