Learn How to add some bling to your jeans with Darice Bling on a Roll. An easy DIY craft tutorial idea to create your own style and fashion. This is a sponsored post on behalf of Darice and some products received were given for that purpose. All opinions are 100% mine.
Last week my husband took our daughter Allie shopping, just the two of them. Isn’t that so cute?! While they were out they found these super cute jeans that were on clearance. Originally $24 down to $4. SCORE!
The jeans fit her really good everywhere but in the length, they were too long.
On Pinterest, I found a tutorial on how to shorten pants while keeping the original bottom hem by Just Sweet & Simple.
It is a great tutorial. Very easy to follow with lots of pictures, and it helped me take the jeans from long to just right!
Isn’t that is much better?
But… There is even more that I want to do with these jeans, they need some bling too!
How to Bling Your Jeans
Supplies Used: Some links may be too similar items when exact items couldn’t be found online.
Begin by sewing the Bling on a Roll onto a strip of black fabric. Set the sewing machine needle to go in between the rows of gems.
My daughter tried the jeans on and with a marker marked where I wanted the holes/gems to be.
Take the strip of fabric with the Bling on a Roll sewn on and cut off a small square. Mine was about 2 by 3 inches.
Pin the square of Bling to the inside of the pants with the bling side touching the wrong side of the jeans. Turn the pants inside out and sew around the edges of the bling patch.
Turn the jeans right side out and with a seam ripper cut a hole within the square of where the bling patch is placed. Distress the edges by pulling on the raw edges. The holes will distress more when the pants are washed.
These Blinged Jeans are so cute and Allie loves them too!
