What a simple and quick way to get a funky new accessory! Save those cuffs when you refashion or repurpose your old jeans and turn them into a super simple DIY jean hem bracelet! All you need are scissors, a snap and 1 minute! #jeansrefashion #refashionjeansI love refashioning and repurposing jeans. We all have jeans and when they become unusable for one reason or another, the fabric is wonderful for using in so many ways. I love the different shades of blue and the fraying of unfinished denim edges. But what about those jean cuffs? Simple: turn them into a super quick and super simple DIY jean hem bracelet!What a simple and quick way to get a funky new accessory! Save those cuffs when you refashion or repurpose your old jeans and turn them into a super simple DIY jean hem bracelet! All you need are scissors, a snap and 1 minute! #jeansrefashion #refashionjeansThis was my favorite pair of jeans for a while. They had ripped many times in the knees, and are actually the same pair that I used to show how to mend holes in jeans in this machine darning tutorial. (Here you can see me wearing it with my Saturn Sweater.)

I turned these favorite jeans into what became my favorite skirt in a funky refashion that I will share a tutorial for soon. But I didn’t need the cuffs for the refashion. I hated to throw them away, so I just came up with a really simple accessory: a jean hem bracelet.

What a simple and quick way to get a funky new accessory! Save those cuffs when you refashion or repurpose your old jeans and turn them into a super simple DIY jean hem bracelet! All you need are scissors, a snap and 1 minute! #jeansrefashion #refashionjeansI hesitate to even call this a tutorial because it’s so ridiculously simple that I didn’t even bother to take step-by-step pictures.

  1. Cut off one denim hem right above the seam with sharp fabric scissors.
  2. Cut through the hem to turn it into a strip.
  3. Trim the strip so that the two ends overlap about 2 cm (¾”).
  4. Apply a snap with a snap press or sew one on by hand.
  5. (Optional) Embellish the strip with embroidery, sewn trim, etc.

I chose not to embellish my jean hem bracelet because I sometimes prefer a simple accessory. I wore this bracelet all last summer because it was lightweight and didn’t stick to me as metal jewelry does when I’m hot and sticky. One great thing about it is that, when it got dirty, I could just throw it in the washing machine with the rest of my laundry.

The cut edges will inevitably fray. You can leave these white threads hanging out if you like that look, otherwise just trim them off.

  1. Thanks to you my stash of old jeans is no longer threatened with eviction!

    Zuzannah, now with not one but three jean hem bracelets

    • Yayy! What great news, Zuzannah! And no, please! Never evict a jeans stash! Old jeans are so much fun to “play” with! I have some new posts coming up using jeans, so make sure you stay tuned for those! 🙂

      • oh no I would never ever get rid of a pair of jeans! It is my long suffering husband who was counting the number of boxes labelled “jeans”. One box is even labelled “jean hems & seams” I am working on a comforter and a rug — you bet I am looking forward to your next ideas!
