Are you all prepped and fly for the 4th of July?


Independence Day is a great excuse to get your Americana style on. To go with all those fireworks this year, we're pimping this awesome distressed denim jacket into an American dream. 

PS --> this DIY isn't just for July... you can flaunt it all year.

Step 1: Paint the base of the chosen area white so that the paint colors pop. Let dry COMPLETELY.

Step 2: Paint on your stripes. We went for a vintage look, so we smudged the jacket and didn't worry too much about being perfect.

Step 3: Paint the base of the star side blue. Let dry COMPLETELY! Unless you want your stars to be baby blue #ewwww.

Step 4: Time for those white stars. You can either freehand them (like we did) which does imply risk of your stars looking chubbs mcbubbs, or you can use a stencil. We chose to live dangerously --> freehand baby. LET DRY COMPLETELY!!! (colors will darken a bit)

Step 5: Flip that jacket over. It's time to do the back. Repeat steps 1-4 on the upper back.

Step 6: This is optional (yeaaaaahh, but it's the cool option). Pick a saying and paint it on the back.

On a scale of 1 to America, how freakin cool do you look right now?

Happy 4th of July and enjoy the festivities!!!
