+ These denim baubles are some­thing the kids could eas­ily make. At­tach twine to medium-sized poly­styrene balls then glue on 1cm squares of denim un­til the ball is cov­ered. The denim wreath was cre­ated us­ing 3cm-wide strips of 1.5m fab­ric. Cut three strips and wrap around a poly­styrene ring, se­cur­ing with glue at the back.

+ A denim Santa sack can be made us­ing a 110cm x

70cm piece of fab­ric. Sew a draw­string bag (see page 30 for in­struc­tions) and thread through your rib­bon. We added a denim tas­sel made from 10 strips of fab­ric (60cm x 1cm). Sim­ply fold strips in half, se­cure with a small piece of denim and thread onto your bag.

+ Smaller draw­string bags can be used for gifting presents. On boxes, add denim fab­ric rib­bons or make smaller denim tas­sels for dec­o­ra­tion. Wrap­ping presents in fab­ric is eco-friendly as it can be reused for years to come.
