RECYCLE OLD JEANS INTO A PATCHWORK JEAN BOWL

  • Supplies needed:

Old pair of jeans
Mod Podge and foam brush
A bowl to use as a shape

Start by ripping strips of denim about 4 to 5 inches long and a couple of inches wide. Being precise isn’t necessary so there’s no need to measure. But you do want to rip not cut to get the frayed edge.

  • Once you have a few strips cut, generously brush on Mod Podge and start layering them around the bowl shape. Turn some pieces inside out to get a color variance and add some strips vertically and some horizontally for the patchwork effect.

  • Keep adding strips until the bowl is well covered. Once the Mod Podge is dry, remove the bowl from the base and it’s ready to use.

  • If the Mod Podge is taking forever to dry or just doesn’t seem to be getting hard, stick the bowl in the oven at a low temperature and let it bake for 10-15 minutes.

  • Another helpful tip:

    You don’t need to worry about the jeans sticking to the bowl base. Once dry, it comes off easily. We tried putting a layer of parchment paper between the bowl used for shaping and the jean strips on our first attempt, and it will be impossible to get the paper off the jeans!
