white denim (here and here from Miss KL)
black fabric paint
1" painter's tape or masking tape
paper plate or paint palette
1. To prevent the paint from seeping to the other side, I suggest cutting up a large trash bag in half. Then, place one half inside each pant leg. Next, tape 1" stripes on the denim. I started at the outer side seams and worked my way inward from the top of the jean to the hem. Use your ruler to make sure the stripes are even.
2. Be sure to tape up the belt loops.
3. In areas like the center and inner side seams, I taped passed them, then traced the seams with a dotted line. Next, cut on your dotted traced line. This creates a clean look when painting these sections.
4. Just as a precaution, I ran my fingers over the tape one more time, making sure there are no bubbles and they are stuck very securely. Then, pour some paint onto your plate/palette and begin painting the non-taped striped areas of your jean. I didn't paint the waistband or front pockets, but it is your preference. Repeat for the backside. Pull off tape, then let dry overnight. When dry, to set the paint, run the iron on medium heat over the painted areas several times.
Another thank you to Miss KL for the collaborating on this DIY!
