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.
