DIY // Polka Dot Jeans

There are few things in this world that I love more than polka dots! Okay, that a huge exaggeration and polka dots are a ways down on my list of things I love, but these polka dots sure do bump it up a few notches! :) Eeek, I love, love these jeans and I'm so excited to wear them when its a bit cooler! 
You'll Need: Jeans or Pants of some kind, Fabric paint, a pencil and some scissors!
Step One: Snip off the end of your pencil eraser to make it nice and flat, for the perfect round dots!
Step Two: Use the cap or other smooth surface to dip the tip of your pencil in and dab onto your jeans! I warn you this is tedious work, but the results are so worth it!
Step Three: Let dry completely and follow instructions for proper sealing according to your fabric paints instructions. For me I had to lay some fabric over top and iron for 5 minutes!
See?! So cute right? I'm so excited about these!
p.s. dont do this on your knees, I did and my leg was numb for like 4 days! haha, do it at a table, it takes a little while to do!

  5. Oh wow, that is such a great idea! And so simple. I may do this with one of my old pairs of jeans, otherwise they'll just get sent away. ^^

  6. That looks like it would be a little time consuming - but the end result is SO worth it. I'm kind of tempted to try it, with different paint colours. Rainbow polka dots!!

  15. did you only do the front side? would it be okay to do both sides, or would that look weird?

  16. or instead of paint you can just use a fabric marker and than you wouldn't have to iron....
