Patterned pants

I'm seeing patterned pants all over the place and in stores like J.Crew but feel apprehensive about dropping $50+ on a pair of pants I can only wear sparingly. I don't like to invest a lot in particular trends versus things I think would be more classic and versatile. This DIY was a way to get in on the trend for a lot cheaper.

  • Jeans (Forever 21, $10)
  • Hole punch (or a stencil)
  • White acrylic paint
  • Sponge brush
I used pages out of a magazine to insert into the pants as I painted them so the paint didn't leak through onto the other side (just in case because these weren't the best quality jeans ever)

You really don't need to put a lot of paint on, just dab it in.

The final product!
