I love pieces of clothing that make strangers on the street stop and say "Whoa, those are cool! Where did you get them?" The only thing that makes that better is being able to say, "Oh, I made them." These paint-splattered jeans will get you that reaction from strangers and they are super easy to make.
1. White jeans
Head out to a local craft store and stock up on bright paints. The brighter the colors, the better. Acrylic paint works really well. You can also use fabric paint, but make sure it isn't the kind that will dry raised on the fabric. You want the paint to absorb into the fabric. When I did this, I used small bottles of acrylic paint and it worked perfectly, and the paint hasn't come out after many, many washes.
3. Sling the paint
Here comes the fun part. Put down a bunch of newspapers or a tarp underneath the pair of jeans (you don't want to get the paint where you don't want it). Open the paint bottles, play your favorite dancing music and start slinging the paint on your jeans. You can have a strategy about where you want the paint to go or you can just go crazy with the slinging (like I did).
4. Let the jeans dry
Once you have finished painting one side of the pants, hang them up to dry. Then repeat step 3 on the other side of the jeans. Make sure you get the sides of the jeans as well. Then hang them up to dry again.
5. Rock your awesome jeans
You now have a piece of clothing that is unique from anything else anyone is wearing. (Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of the pair of jeans I made, but they are much more paint covered than the jeans pictured above.) The paint gives the jeans some texture and the paint splatters will stand out. Strut your stuff!
