Today, I’ll be showing you how to tie dye your jeans. Of course, by now, you’ve probably found it elsewhere, but still… I thought it was fun to share this one with you! Let’s get those hands dirty!
Step 1: You’ll need a few things to make this DIY work! So look for a pair of jeans you’d like to give a second chance of showing that booty of yours! Fill a bucket with some water and add some whitener. The amount is up to you, I added quite a lot to make this work, but like I said: it’s up to you Next you’ll need a pair of plastic gloves because bleaching can be a b*tch! Grab a few elastics and keep following instructions….
Step 2: For a nice tie dye effect, putting the pants in a bucket with some whitener will not be enough. You’ll have to wrap the jeans in every way possible and secure those small parts with some elastics. Start at the bottom of your pants and wrap it all the way up! The places you can’t see, the whitener can’t reach. Are you getting excited already?
Step 3: It’s time for some action. You’ll have wrapped the jeans with a few elastics and put on those gloves already… So now, do it! Put those pants in that freakin’ bucket! Make sure they stay under, because they tend to float around… I filled another bucket with some water and put in on top to make sure it stays where it needs to be. Now leave them in there for as long as you want, as long as you like the result!
Step 4: After all the running back and forth to the bucket, you can finally take those pants out of the water, let them dry, maybe wash them first… and then you can flaunt them jeans, Isabel Marant style! I can not assure you it will go as quick as it seems but you’ll love the result! What I can tell you is that you have to choose a thick pair of jeans because the ones I’m wearing here are in fact jeggings, of which the fabric is not very strong… That results in a few holes here and there, hihi!
Have fun and let me know how it turns out ^^
