I haven't tried this yet, but I REALLY want to... Cut the jean legs into thin loops of fabric and link together the same way you would with "plarn" then try to crochet!  Probably would need a large crochet hook.  If anyone tries this, let me know how this works out! Roll Eyes

For gift tags: Instead of covering the printed side with gift wrap, what if you spray painted them? You might have to use a primer first to get good coverage, but then you could glitter paint or even spray adhesive and glitter them!  Then to create the "To/From" side, make a cute label on your computer using a template and mailing labels and voila! Fast and easy!

Ok, so I know this is old, but just in case anyone like me is looking just for the heck of it, I brainstormed and came up with an idea. One I might do in a few months, actually. I work in a doctor's office, so I have a lot of patients coming and going. We raise money every year for Relay for Life and we come up with ideas for how to raise money. I am thinking something really cool would be to have all different colors of ribbon, to coordinate with the types of cancer ( or if you are doing all illnesses, check those too) then have people buy a length of ribbon for say $2.00 or so. Allow them to write their loved one's name on the ribbon and tie it to the tree. Not only would it be very neat looking, but it would also be a great reminder of the struggles everyone face through life, and the strength that is behind them to help them fight for a cure. I'm thinking I might be doing this in October...have a Breast Cancer memorial tree. Now to find some pink Christmas lights.....lol

My husband and I created pink/red light strands for a party by removing the multi colored lights from a bunch of different strands and replacing with just the pink and red bulbs.  For the other lights, we created a few blue & gold strands for my little brothers party celebrating his graduation from PITT.  It came out REALLY cute!!!
