How to decorate your old jeans to make them look as good as new

 If you have an old pair of jeans that you want to transform, we will give you some ideas you can try before you decide to throw them away, all you need is colored ribbons, paint and imagination.

 Here it is what you will need:



Embroidery threads


Glue with glitter

Fabric paint

 Here are the steps you will need to follow to decorate your jeans:

 Spread the pair of jeans in a flat surface, a table would be great for this task

Make 20 horizontal cuts on the seam

Knit the ribbon inside out of the seam you cut

Sew one end of the ribbon to the waistband, and the other to the hem

Repeat this process on the other leg

Sew the holes of the seams with embroidery thread

Make different designs at the front of the jeans with the fabric paint, you can create whatever designs, shapes or drawing come to your mind, what is most important is that you use your imagination and play with the paints.


You will see how the final appearance of your jeans change drastically after you have followed these easy steps; however, keep in mind that you will only be able to hand wash them, as putting them into a washing machine can destroy the stitches you did or can erase the fabric paint you put on them.


“Jeans are part of almost everybody’s wardrobes, and many people love them as they last longer than any other garments and not only that, you can play with these garments to make different creations or even recycle the jeans and give them new life”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, a jeans manufacturer company in Mexico.
