Fun DIY: Polka Dot Denim!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hi sweeties! so I know I have been mia for a while but so much is happening right now ...anyway I am back to share with you a fun but a little time consuming diy project I decided to tackle..these jeans!. Ive seen fashionistas rocking these polka dot demin and ive been loving em! but the few ive seen are waay too overpriced so I decided to do them myself.
 
What do you need?:
 
1. A pair of jeans- this can be light or dark washed denim. I purchased these light kinda stone washed denim from the thrift store for $3. Note,  ive gotten the clothing items for all my diy projects at thrift stores this is because if  it doesn't work out the way I want I wouldn't have wasted too much money.
 
2. White Fabric Paint- you can purchase this at any craft store, I got mine at Joann's for $3.
 
3. Skinny Paint Brush- again from Joann's , I don't recall how much they were but Im sure they weren't more than $5 and the great part is ..its a whole pack so you have extra for other projects.
 
4. Circle Stencil: This I bought from Office Depot for $5.99
 
and then you get to work! This project took me a total of 4 days (not continuously) to complete but a little less than 30 minutes to do  one side of a leg. When I just started, I tried to follow a pattern but stopping then picking up the next day (or 2 days)....well I lost the pattern...lol. As you can see, I eventually completed it ..what do you think??
 
P.S. Some of you were curious about the durability of the fabric paint after a wash, well it is recommended (in the directions on this paint) to wait 72 hrs before washing so I did, for additional safety I turned the jeans inside out and didn't put it in the dryer.

  10. So pretty!

    Does the paint wash off when you put the jeans in the washer or is it long lasting?

  54. This is such a cool and unique yet easy DIY... the kind of DIY that I love! Loving how your silver pumps and clutch accentuates the white of your polka dots. I'm now inspired to try this on a pair of old denim shorts! :)
