Red, White and Blue Garland / Backdrop

Hi friends,

First of all, Happy 4th of July! I salute the people whose sacrifices have made our freedom possible. I feel so proud to be a part of the most wonderful country in the world.

It's been a while since my last post. I took a big needed break to enjoy the company of my sister and her family that were visiting us, and the area for the first time.

Talk about going places, walking mile after mile around the DC area visiting museums and monuments, going on long shopping sprees, and of course, staying up way past our regular bed times. It sounds like it was a lot and yep, it was, but we had tons of fun and that's what's important.

Today, I have a simple project I created some weeks ago utilizing those damaged jeans I collected last year when
the first jean-projects started.

This garland or backdrop was done for the father's day party because I wanted something to bring the eye upwards and also to create a separation from eyes looking only at the pretty flowering yard.

I also made some jean-pocket tags and that's why this jean was already pocket-less. :)

For the garland I used the entire length of the jean, cutting one inch strips.

Red gingham fabric and white ribbon were the other materials used to complete the garland.

The red fabric and white ribbon were easy to tie around a piece of rope with a simple knot.
The jean fabric on the other hand was attached with snap fasteners.

I think they look super cute this way. :)

Hey, a nice way to give interest or deflect attention from something you don't want to show, and it can also be used as a photo backdrop.

Did I tell you how much I've been loving working with old jeans?!

Well, this next projects it's by far one of my favorites, and it was all done with 
the same stash of OLD JEANS!

how to make a pillow from old jeans.

You saw them in my family room during the Summer Home Tour. I've received lots of compliments from visitors because really, they look awesome, and the best part: They are easy to make.

Head over to Lil' Luna where I'm sharing the complete tutorial on how you can make your own!

  1. Wow, you sure got all you could out of those jeans! That hexagon pillow would make a great purse/bag/tote. Happy 4th!

    1. Thanks Brenda! Ha, I think that's going to be my next project with what is left of those jeans. Yep, I still have some little pieces. ;)

  2. This is adorable! I love the idea of using this as a backdrop for photos!

    1. Thanks Jordyn! Now I'm thinking about doing one of these backdrops for Christmas... Hmmm, gold-white-silver perhaps.

  3. Very cute and I love the pillow as well. Can you use the stretchy jeans as well as the regular for these projects? Happy 4th!

    1. Ha, good question Julie, I had no idea! :) I personally don't like stretchy jeans. I don't buy them either for me or my family. I guess they're OK. Happy fourth of July to you too!

  4. So cute. That would be darling for photos with my kids at school.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
