DIY DENIM

Get more mileage from your denim by giving an old favourite a face-lift!

You will need:
1. A shirt, jacket or waistcoat of your choice
2. Embellishments – stones, crystals, beads, anything that inspires your inner magpie
3. Fabric glue

What to do:
Whether it’s a cuff, collar or pocket – the first thing to do is to identify where you want to add your embellishments.
Firstly, prep the area with a coat of glue (denim is quite absorbent so this will ensure your embellishments wont fall off).

Apply your chosen embellishment (we used pearls) one by one, adding a small blob of glue behind each one.
Wipe off any excess glue, place your garment on a flat surface and allow the glue to dry overnight.
Voila! A new distinguished, detailed denim piece in your wardrobe.

Want more DIY tips? Save cash and give an old pair of jeans a bleach effect or acid wash – these effects ruled the runway this season and are an instant update for tired denims.
