Looking for a new way to recycle all those old jeans? Here’s a great DIY tutorial to make a recycled denim vest out of old denim. You just need some old jeans, scissors,  and some thread or glue. I made this last week and couldn’t believe how easy it was. I wanted a fairly long vest so I used a pair of large men’s jeans I found at the thrift store for $2.00. The materials were simple and straightforward and many people may have them already laying around.

This is the cutest vest ever, I wore it shopping and then to the local coffee shop with my friends and I am not kidding about the compliments I kept getting. I now have orders for 5 more for my friends, so be careful telling people you made it, you may need to open a factory! Lol!
