New Use for Old Clothes

Good morning!
It’s the Labor Day holiday from school here in the U.S. and we’re going to spend the day enjoying….cleaning!  Whee!  We had a busy weekend and my husband is preparing for some upcoming training at work, so we decided to keep our Labor Day low key.  I’ll get some housecleaning done and then we’ll relax a bit.
Friday night I finally completed a project I’ve wanted to do the last two months.  A Burlap and Denim Patriotic Wreath.  It came out pretty much like the original idea I saw and I’m thrilled with it.
I’m sharing this craft with you on my weigh-loss blog, because funny thing…I needed denim for the blue part of the wreath, so I cut up an old pair of size 16 jeans.  Yep, they got too big for me, so I used the material for a craft.  I already have plans for the rest of the pair of jeans.
Using old larger jeans for a craft – another tiny aspect of weight loss that is fun and saved me some money too.  🙂
Have a nice day!
