DIY : Printed Denim-Cute Little Hearts

by

I was in a crafty mood today and was wondering what to do about it. Just then I realized it’s been a while since I published a DIY post in my blog and started looking around in my wardrobe to see what can I do that will make a cool DIY post for my readers. I laid my hands onto these old pair of denims from Pepe Jeans.These denims have a great fit but I have been wearing them for little too long now and almost getting bored of the same look. Bingo! There I decided to give a makeover to my skinny denims and this is what I did! 🙂

Here is the step by step guide to creating these lovely DIY printed denims at home 🙂

You will need a pair of jeans in any color or fit, fabric colors of your choice, water color brushes and a pencil (optional).

Lay the jeans on a hard and flat surface and start drawing the motif that you want to paint a repeat of. Its better to keep the motif simple. I chose to paint little white hearts on my jeans. Other motif ideas could be- polka dots, little flowers, stars etc. I started painting directly with my paint brush. However, if you are not very comfortable doing that, feel free to use a pencil to draw the motifs first. You may trace some motifs too.

As you can see, I filled some of the heart with colors while left some just as outlines. That is the way I wanted it. You, of course, have all the creative freedom to do whichever you like! 🙂

    Really cute idea <3 Do you think you could get an interesting effect using bleach instead of paint on denim?

      For this particular design I think paint is a better option. But I totally agree, a lot of interesting effects can be created in a denim with bleach. I have tried some of them as a fashion design student in my college 🙂 Thanks for dropping by and for your comment! Thanks for the tip as well 🙂

    I LOVE these! I did some like these a little while back, only I painted a red heart over each knee! I am going to add this to my DIY To Do list, for sure.

    Very cute! What are your thoughts on washing them? Will the paint stay on? Does it matter? 🙂

      Thanks lovely! Yeah, I’ve washed these jeans several times after the DIY artwork. Its a fabric paint I used and the color is as good as new!!
