How to embellish jeans with fabric paint and rhinestones
Do you live in your jeans? When you go out do you want to look fabulous in jeans but are unable to afford those pricey embellished jeans? You can easily and inexpensively transform a plain pair of jeans into a dazzling pair.
For this project I used:
A pair of jeans
White fabric paint
Light Topaz 20ss Rhinestones
Wax tipped tool
You can paint the daisies freehand or you can use a template. I like to use a template which I cut out of heavy cardstock.
Squeeze your white fabric paint in a shallow paint dish. Lay the template flat along one side of the jeans. With a sponge brush, dab white paint on the jeans. I painted six daisies on one side and one daisy on the other side. If you like more daisies, move the template lower along the pant leg and paint more.
Allow to dry completely.
When the paint is completely dry, place a drop of glue slightly smaller than the rhinestone in the middle of a white daisy. With a wax tipped tool, pick up a rhinestone and gently press it into the glue.
Repeat for all the daisies. Allow to dry flat for 24 hours.
Sassy yet, stylish, you’ll love your new jeans!
