- As you can see in the picture, there are a lot of things to recreate your old clothes, including beads, buttons, thorns, etc.
How to decorate a denim jacket easily
- Look for the materials in any appropriate shop or market.
- Buy fabric paint. As a rule, it is cheap enough and available in almost any color you can imagine. Also, it is easy to use spray to draw abstract designs on the backside of the jacket or simply buy brushes to create more specific images.
- Anchor the jacket when you start painting. It is better to move around it.
- Put a piece of cardboard inside the shirt, so paint does not penetrate through other parts of the jacket.
- Sew several parts of old clothes. For example, add two strips of cheetah, leopard, zebra, or printing on the both sides of the jacket.
- With a hot glue gun, glue rhinestones along the seams of the belt or in a pocket of your denim jacket. Strass add flashy and glamorous touch.
- Write few words with spray paint. Spread the letters (one to two inches tall). Let it dry and then place another layer, above the previous. Before painting put down the newspapers under your denim jacket, just not to blur a surface; and put cardboard inside the jacket to prevent paint seeping through.
