Creative Mondays: Up Cycled!

Happy Bank holiday Monday everyone.

Hope you are all having a lovely long weekend?

Welcome to Creative Mondays, my favourite blog hop of the week as I get to see all your amazing creative ideas 🙂

Link up, have fun blog hopping and please be kind enough to link back to the hop in your post and leave a comment if you like the blog hop.

Over the last few weeks, I have been Spring cleaning. Sorting out old clothes that are never going to be worn again and saving the odd pieces of denim for some up-cycling projects I have in mind.

First up I have a simple ” old jeans new shorts” upcycle to share.

I took some of my Husband’s old jeans and cut them down and made them into new to him shorts! 

I think he wears them more now than he ever did at full length.

I love to upcycle and repurpose old things if I can.

Do you like to recycle old things too? 

I have got a few more pair of jeans to change up a bit now.

These took a matter of minutes to complete.

So a nice and easy one to start with.
