DIY: DECKED OUT HOLIDAY DENIM


Wanna wear denim to a holiday party, but still pull off a fun + festive vibe? Yeah, us too.

Here's how you can deck out your denim for the holidays. 👇

YOU NEED
✔️ Your fave pair of distressed denim
✔️ Colored beads + faux pearl beads
✔️ Sewing needle
✔️ White thread
✔️ Scissors
✔️ Basic sewing skills


STEP 1
Thread the needle using approx 4 inches of white thread + tie a knot at the end. Put your beads on.

(psst: repeat this step until you have 3 strings for each leg)


STEP 2
Starting with the needle end, sew the beaded thread onto your denim, near the knee.


STEP 3
Make a few knots to secure the first side of your beaded thread. Then, cut off the excess thread.


STEP 4
At this point, only one side of your beaded thread will be sewn onto your jeans. Now it's time to sew the other side.

- Thread the needle onto approx 4 inches of thread and tie a knot.
- Make a few stitches to secure the second side of the beaded thread to your denim.
- Cut off the excess thread.

STEP 5
Repeat steps 1-4 until you have 3 strings of beads on each leg.


STEP 6
Now it's time for the individual pearls!

Thread the sewing needle onto a long thread + tie a knot at the end.

- Place a single faux pearl bead onto the needle.
- Pierce the needle through a tiny bit of denim.
- Pull the thread all the way through.


STEP 7

- Loop the thread back through the pearl a second time.
- Pull it tight.
- Make a few knots to secure it in place.


Repeat steps 6 and 7 until you have as many pearls as you want all over your denim.

FINISHED!


p.s. : Be careful when washing these. Wash them solo on a gentle cycle, inside out - or - in a mesh garment bag.
