DIY: Heart Stamped Jeans

Have you noticed that there is stamped denim everywhere right now? You can find it on anything from shorts to jeans to vests and even jackets. With everything from stars to hearts to patriotic flags to polka dots!
Well that inspired me to do a little home project when I could not find the hearts in my size. I found a clearance pair of skinnies from Target, headed home and sanded a few spots on them in the garage and then washed and dried them, prepping them for their paint job.

Here is my inspiration photo. 
If you follow me on Pinterest then you may have seen it.

Believe you me, I searched high and low for her shoes too! They were from F21 and are no longer available-boo!
  • Denim item
  • Card board/poster board
  • Fabric paint
  • Paper punch
  • Scissors
  • Card stock for paint mold
  • Plastic cup for paint
  • Fabric sponge or makeup sponge would work

Step 1: Cut card board or poster board in strips to fit inside of legs and hole punch your guide on card stock {I made 3 of these to rotate in and out because they got a little wet with paint}

 Step 2: Line up pattern to begin sponging on paint. A little goes a long way {I did mess up on a few but then again it is art ;] and nothing is perfect! Ha.}

 Let first side dry about 30-60 mins then flip and do the other side. It was so easy it probably took me less than an hour to do both sides minus drying time. I also did this entire project on the carpet {shh} and made it ok. This is not a messy project at all and I am the queen of clumsy.
Here they are... Cannot wait to wear them and show you how they look.

Would you DIY something like this? Or hunt it down to buy it? Sometimes DIY seems like a great idea but then you get into it and it takes forever and you wish you just bought it.
These were worth the effort!

Thanks for reading I hope you have a great day!!
