There are loads of things you can do with your old jeans. Donate them, sell them, orrrrr… you can do DIY projects. While old jeans are great canidates for DIY projects in terms of trying out trends, like polka dot jeans, for example. You can also do many other types of projects (in case you have too many trendy jeans, or jean shorts, or whatever!) From reupholstering old furniture, to creating toys for the children in your life, or heck, even Christmas tree ornaments! The sky is really the limit!
