Denim Denim everywhere!


So what do you do with the size 3T jeans your son no longer fits in?

Well wouldn't you know it - they are the PERFECT length for making denim rosettes from ;) And that's exactly what I did. And one of the items I made is a giveaway, so keep reading ;)

I made headbands:

I made some hairclips that will go into the homemade gifts pile for upcoming birthdays/holidays:

And finally - I made a denim rosette necklace! It has a pewter colored chain with different size/colored pearles and some blue beads as well.

And what's the giveaway? The denim necklace above! It is the perfect item to glam up a casual outfit, or dress down a pretty black dress. So, if you want to be entered to win this, simply leave a comment on this post about what you'd wear it with, and I'll pick a winner next Monday!

Thanks, and have a great week!

I'm participating in Upcycled Awesome - you should too!

  1. Love your projects but especially that rosette necklace, I love the denim and pewter. And I am a total sucker for rosettes of any kind, so you've got me coming and going, you clever woman.

  2. OH!! Just LOVE it!! I would totally wear it with a black. Or maybe jeans & a great white T. Great job!!

  3. I think it'd be great with just a plain white t - -

  4. you're a genius. really, you are! the necklace is LOVELY, and i've been dying for my own bib necklace, especially with rosettes and this is just perfect!

    i'd pair it with a cute white t-shirt with a blue border that i have, a powder blue cardigan on top, this necklace, and black denims. and a whole bunch of acrylic, bohemian bangles :)

  5. I love this. Recycled denim is in my top two favourite materials to work with. ever. What would I wear it with? A white t-shirt definitely. Or a super cheerful sundress in yellow or pink!
    It is funny you link to this because I was going to be doing something similar (but completely different) this week. p.s. Thanks for linking up!

  6. Very cute! I love the style and recycled nature of this necklace!

  7. ...I'm visiting from Sassy Sites! Come by and say HI! Your blog is adorable! I'm a new follower!

  8. That is gorgeous! I love denim and I would wear it with this black dress I have or with a white shirt that I have or pretty much just about anything I own!

  9. I am so in love with this necklace. Well done. I would sport this beauty with a casual black dress or a white T. Super cute!!!!

  10. I LOVE it! I have several outfits I know it would look great with, but I'd probably mostly wear it with my soft cream tank I have and my favorite dark denim knee-length skirt! Just ADORABLE!!!

  11. LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE it! I need more headbands, thats an awesome idea for one! Thanks for linking up!!! :)

  12. Great necklace. I'm thinking it would look great with a white t-shirt and jeans!

  15. I love ALL of these!! What a great idea to use old jeans. Seriously, cute. Thank you for linking it up. Happy day to you!

  16. my husbands mother made him a comforter when he went to college from the families jeans. it's 20 years old but still a favorite to cozy up under.

    i'd wear this with a white t- shirt or button up and jeans.

    fun idea.

  17. That is so pretty - nice job
