Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I thought I’d start the week off with this cute DIY to add to your closet. I stopped into Anthropolgie a few weeks ago and saw this pair of super cute heart printed jeans by AG Stevie. So I decided to try it myself. I am extremely happy with the results and they looked even better on!
Read further for step by step instructions on how to create this pair of Heart Print Jeans yourself!
- A pair of skinny/ankle cut jeans, mine are from American Eagle Outfitters.
- A fabric removeable pen/pencil
- A piece of thin cardboard
- White fabric paint
- Cosmetic sponge
1. Start by marking your jeans up to create a guide for your heart stencil. I made my hearts 2 inches apart. I started by marking one inch markings first though so that I got an idea of the spacing.
2. Cut a heart shape stencil from a small piece of cardboard and use this as your paint stencil.
3. Pour the fabric paint onto a plate and apply paint using a small cosmetic sponge, ensure to remove excess paint by dabbing onto a test sheet of paper.
4. Start stencilng from top to bottom, vertically.
5. I made my hearts all two inches apart, where I had space for a portion of a heart, I also tried to fill it in, i.e. along the seams. Once again I’ve made my hearts all 2 inches apart vertically and horizontally, and created a ‘diagonal’ grid type of pattern. Follow my image below if you’re unsure.
6. Repeat on the other pant leg and try to be as symmetrical as you can. I found placing the legs side by side and taking a ruler and mearsuing across the two legs works the best.
Here you have it! What do you think?
