leslierahye's 3rd Annual Earth Day Blog Hop

Welcome to my 3rd Annual Earth Day Blog Hop! This is one of my passions...upcycling! On a daily basis I am looking for ways to renew-reuse-recycle the materials I come into contact with. I am constantly rescuing toilet paper rolls from their landfill destiny, rinsing out bottles and jars, folding up packing materials for my box of supplies and reclaiming envelopes for mini altered journals.

Upcycled Denim Baskets
These fun baskets were created simply by removing the bottom of blue jeans, sewing up the bottom,and adding trim to the folded cuff. I will add a small can on the inside of each to allow me to place pens, brushes, pencils in them--the can will keep the tools from leaking on the denim and keep them looking pretty longer!
