After cutting up some old jeans for my denim USA banner, I knew I had to make something out of the best part of the pants – the pockets! This decorative bunting made from blue jean pockets is an easy way to show a little patriotic pride at your Fourth of July party or upcoming backyard BBQ!
To start, simply cut out the pockets from a pair of old jeans, making sure to cut both the pocket AND the denim layer underneath. This will leave you with a pocket-shaped bunting piece that is actually a pocket you can use.
Lastly, I clipped each pocket to a strand of ribbon using miniature clothespins and filled them with flowers and an American flag:
One of the things I love about this bunting is that no sewing is required – just cut, paint, and clip!
Another thing that makes me wave my flag is that you can fill these cute little pockets with whatever you’d like! I opted for flowers and a flag, but you don’t have to stop there. You can fill them with patriotic pinwheels, sunscreen and bug spray, treats for the kiddos, or even silverware and condiments for your backyard BBQ!
