MY DIY | Decorated Denim


You guys, I am ready, bring on the sun because I have my bedazzled/painted denim and a tan. I think this will be the Summer of the jean short for me, and I must say the I am pretty stoked with the makeover of this pair. I could not decided if I wanted to paint or add gems, so ended up with a little of each.  The best pair is that you can customize to your liking, steps below!

What You Need: 
Jean Shorts (mine are Levi’s)
White fabric paint
Sew-on gems
Needle and thread
Spray and squirt bottle

Pour fabric paint into the squirt bottle
Quickly scribble on your jeans with the fabric paint, let dry
Next arrange the gems down on your jeans
Sew into place

    I have a legitimate question–did you at all consider the option of putting the studs on the outside of the pockets instead of where you did? Because putting them there looks like it would make it a lot harder to actually use the pockets (always scratching your hands on corners and metal edges when trying to use them, etc).

  5. Cool ones! 😀
