An old pair of jeans will turn this inexpensive basket into something totally special!

You will need:
metal waste basket (with large holes)
old pair of jeans
scissors or rotary cutter
ruler
fabric glue (I used Fabri-Tac)
  1. Cut multiple ½-inch-thick strips of denim from old jeans, long enough to fit around largest diameter of basket.
  2. Wrap top and bottom edges of basket with denim strips until covered.
  3. Weave individual strips of denim around basket horizontally, moving up a row at a time until completely covered. To create a 2-toned effect, turn denim strip over to reveal lighter (or darker) side of fabric.
  4. At the end of each row, secure denim to itself with fabric glue.
  5. Trim strips as needed.
