DIY Distressed Jeans Look

2015-06-23 16.48.11 nn

I literally made these distressed jeans in about 2 hours. It is suuuper easy and you won’t need to buy them at a store. This was my way of upgrading some old jeans i had at the bottom of my closet. when you wash them afterwards they get this “torn” look way messier than before, thats the idea of it. i totally recomend it! 

You will need:

jeans of your choice
Scissors
White Chalk 
Tweezers

jeans.....

Instructions

  1. Mark your lines with chalk and, they have to be parrallel lines. Cut the parrallel lines.
  2. Use tweezers to loosen some of the white threads on top and bottom of each cut. I used needle nose tweezers for this step because they make it easier to dig out the threads. Loosening the white threads prepares you for the next step and also creates a frayed edge.
  3. The number of threads you loosen depends on how long you want your frayed edge to be. I made mine about half a centimeter long.
  4. Use the tweezers to pull out all of the blue threads in between the two cuts

Measure the cardboard and cut a piece and scotch tape it where you want the division to go inside the box. Measure the box and the distance you want each black stripe to go over the white and with the scotch tape place it exactly where they would go.

After the paint has dried take the scotch tape off and with the small brush paint the stripes black. Once everything has dried, measure where you want the gold stripes to go trace it with a pencil and a ruler and begin to paint with the gold paint. Let the box dry overnight. Next morning open the box and paint it white inside with two coats.
