Fabric paint is a really great tool to work with, there are so many patterns and designs you can create to spruce up any piece of clothing. That’s why I was happy I had some on hand for these DIY paint print jeans.

I had put on these white jeans and I was about to head out when I noticed there were blue stains all over the back. I had accidentally stored them under a pair of dark wash jeans, so some of the blue dye had rubbed off on them, whoops! I was a bit upset that my white jeans were now ruined, but with a bit of thinking I knew I could DIY them into something new. Continue reading for the DIY below.

The Supplies

DIY Print Jeans Supplies

Jeans
Fabric Paint
A Tray
Sponge
Paint brush
Tape
2 Garbage bags

The Steps

Lay your pants on a flat surface, take a garbage bag and pull it through the pant leg (so that the paint doesn’t soak through to the other side), do the same for the other leg.

Put some fabric paint on the tray and dip the sponge into the paint. Take the brush and evenly distribute the paint onto the brush.

Take your sponge and press it paint-side down onto the pant starting from the bottom. Since the first application has fresh paint, press lightly and then gradually increase the pressure on the sponge.

Continue pressing the sponge down onto the pant until there is no more paint coming off the sponge.

Reapply paint to the sponge and evenly distribute with the brush. Again, press the sponge onto the pant.

Continue the last 2 steps until you’ve painted the front of the pants.

I decided I wanted to have a different colour around the pockets so I left the area unpainted. I added some pink paint to a brush and painted around the top part of the pockets.

Let the paint dry completely. Flip the pants over and sponge paint the backside of the pants. If you would like to add a second colour to the back pockets like I did. Leave the area unpainted. Let the paint dry completely.

Add the tape across the back pockets and then tuck the garbage bags into the pockets. With the paint brush paint the second colour up to the tape line.
