DIY ideas: how to create a handmade pot with recycled jeans
Have you ever wondered what to do with the jeans you don't wear? You can take advantage of the fabric to create a handmade pot with recycled denim like the one proposed by Pillar Box Blue . You'll love it!
To do this, you only need a few cans -as many as you want to decorate- of different sizes, old jeans, glue, scissors, soil to cultivate and small succulent or succulent plants, perfect for this type of pot since they are plants that allow the storage of water in much larger amounts than other plants. From the pants we specifically need the seams, the hems and the waists, which will wrap our beautiful handmade container. Once we have everything, the steps to follow would be the following:
First of all, to create a handmade pot you have to cut the seams and hems of the jeans. Then we will glue the different strips of fabric in a circumference around each can until they are completely covered with denim. It is important to apply glue to both the fabric and the can and that the ends of each strip are aligned. In addition, to fix each of the strips we can place a pin holding the two ends for a few minutes until the glue dries; it is about applying pressure and reinforcing the glue used.
Then we will use another seam to cover the ends of each strip and embellish our handmade pot -glue it over the rest of the fabric and reinforce it with pins until it dries.
Now you just have to place the succulent plants in your new handmade pot, cover the roots with soil and water them according to their needs, you will give a touch of color to your home and a second life to your old jeans and cans.
