Upcycle that old blazer or jacket with some safety pins! You’ll be punk-rocker chic as well as helpful to anyone that rips the crotch of their pants.
- blazer that needs sprucing
- safety pins – a bunch of them in two different sizes
- start fastening the safety pins at the bottom of the blazer lapel
- as you pin up the lapel, switch the direction of the pin so it has an alternating pattern with the clasp going one way and then the other
- when you get to a wider area of the lapel, you can use larger safety pins to mix it up
- go all the way around the neck of the jacket and back down to the other side
- now it’s ready to wear! …and you’ll be able to help anyone who has a fashion emergency – broken bra strap, have no fear!
