DIY Tie Dye Jeans.

Hey Lovehearts! Hope the Easter Bunny visited you over the weekend.....he definitely visited me! and since I have been gorging myself on way too many Easter eggs, I decided to distract myself with a little DIY project. Now I've been wanting a pair of tie dye jeans for a while now but since I'm saving for NYC I've been good and told myself 'NO' to yet another pair of jeans....so I decided to reinvent an old pair of jeans! Its so easy to do so you should try it out yourself with my step by step instructions......enjoy!

  1. You will need a pair of jeans, rubber bands, bleach, rubber gloves and a bucket.
  2. Fill up your bucket with cold water. Soak your jeans in water until completely wet.
  3. Ring them out.
  4. Tie as many or as little rubber bands as you want onto your jeans. There is no right or wrong way to do this, the more rubber bands you tie on the more darker patches you will have.
  5. Fill your bucket again with water and add half a bottle of bleach.
  6. Using your rubber gloves place your jeans into water.
  7. Depending on how light you want the tie dye parts to be, leave your jeans in the bucket for a few hours, checking constantly. It is also a good idea to place something heavy on top of the jeans to keep them under water.
  8. Once you are happy with the colour, rinse the jeans in cold water and let them set for an 1/2 hour or so then proceed to wash them as usual.


My veranda was slightly windy so sorry about a the photos :p

    2. It is 4:30 am and I just could not resist‼️ My jeans are soaking and I swiped rocks from the courtyard to anchor them down. I am so excited‼️ Thank you for sharing and especially for the photos and perfect instructions. Albeit, my rubber bands kept popping so I used white ribbon to tie them up.

  24. Check all faucets and piping for leaks by monitoring for drips of water under sinks and from exposed pipes. Perform an inspection with the water on and off, as some leaks only occur when the water is on.
