I bought this great neon pants for my daughter, Maypop, a month or so ago. I thought it would be fun to add a fun DIY touch to the pants. Anyone who knows us at TREEHOUSE knows we love to fabric print on anything, so that is what I did to these. The project was super easy and a lot of fun!
- Paper Plate
- Small Paint Brush
- Textile Medium
- Acrylic Paint
First, I started with a pair of brightly color jeans…they were $5 at Old Navy or you could stalk your local thrift store and find some.
I used thin washi tape to create my pattern. The sky is the limit! stripes…squares….diamonds..hexagons
After I was finished taping I gathered all my other materials. You will need a paper plate, paint brush, textile medium, acrylic paint colors of your choice. I chose black and white since my pants were already so bright.
Using a 2 parts textile medium to 1 part paint. I started with white added a little bit of black for each shape. It is better to start with white and add the color.
Continue down the legs until your done!
and TA-DA you’re done and you have a super snazzy pair of pants.
