Polka Dot Jeans

Polka Dot Jeans:

What you'll need:

- Pair of distressed jeans
- Circle sponge brush
- White fabric paint
- Paper Plate
- Ruler

How to do it:

1. Add about one tbsp of water to 3 tbsp of white fabric paint on a paper plate.  I chose to water the paint down a bit to match the look of the washed out denim.

2. Mix the paint and water together and dip your circle sponge brush into the paint mixture.

3. Press the circle sponge brush onto the denim. I painted the first dot at the front side of the denim, near the belt loops.

4. Measure the next line of polka dots. Mine are about 3" apart horizontally and 1 1/2" apart vertically.

5. Continue to paint the dots all over the front side. Let dry for a couple hours, then paint the back side. Let fully dry. It is important to set the fabric paint, if you plan on washing the jeans later. Once the dots are fully dry, set the iron on medium and run across the front and back side of your jeans a couple times. Remember to constantly move the iron, and not to use steam.



























Enjoy!

  1. I am going to try this with an old pair of skinny jeans! With a bleach pen, per your recommendation. :)
