This recycled denim beads tutorial from Amanda at Crafts by Amanda is such a fun way to upcycle jeans that have seen better days!

Tween girls will love this project, so if you have one you may just want to give this a whirl. This could be really fun for a girl scout troop too!

I’ve seen this method used for paper beads, but denim is absolutely perfect for making big, bold statement necklaces!
