 To kick off our FALL party, I wanted to create something really easy and inexpensive that could be used throughout the year.

I picked up this pair of worn denim overalls at a thrift store. I love overalls and had they fit me, I’d be wearing them right now, but they were mens’ bibs so they were destined for something new.

This couldn’t be an easier project!  All you need is some old overalls (even child-size ones will work), E6000 or other strong glue, and some clothespins.
I cut off the top of the overalls, just below the pocket (save the leftover denim for other projects!), flipped them over and ran a bead of glue along the BACK inside edges of the overalls and across the bottom edge, then clipped the clothespins on to hold it in place until it dried.
It’s important to put the glue on the inside edge of the back because the back is smaller than the front part of the bib.

I tucked a canning jar inside the bib opening to hold some fall mums, then gathered up some other vintage items to tuck behind it and put in the pockets.
You could use this in place of a wreath and change it with the seasons, but it would make a wonderful wall pocket to hold pens, paper, scissors, etc. over a desk or in a child’s room.
Hang it by your couch to hold your remote controls!  There are so many ways to use it and it is so easy and inexpensive to make.

  4. My grandpa wore that same brand overalls every single day. Maybe it was a farmer thing. Maybe it was a southern thing. I dunno. But every memory I have of him, he’s wearing overalls. This really tugs at my heart strings… makes me really miss him. I absolutely love it!

  5. Dang, i should have kept all of those overalls from the early 90’s! I will be on the lookout for them now at thrift stores.
