What you’ll need

  • Jeans with pockets (any denim pants, shorts or jacket will work)
  • Fabric paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Masking or painter’s tape
  • Paint palette or paper plate
  • Cup with water (to rinse brushes while working)
  • Paper towels or a rag (to clean brushes while working)
  • Chalk (optional)

 

What to do

  1. Come up with an idea to paint on the jean pocket. It could be flowers, clouds, rainbows, animals or cartoon characters. The options are endless.
  2. Place tape around the jean pocket to keep unwanted paint away from areas it shouldn’t go.
  3. Chalk can be used to plan out the design on the pocket before painting.
  4. Begin painting.
  5. Allow the denim to dry completely before removing tape.
  6. Apply added coats of paint as needed
