4th of July is almost here & we are so excited to be on a boat, drinkin’ a beer, and celebrating good ol’ America.
Here’s a step-by-step on how to create your own patriotic shorts!
buy a pair of old jeans from a thrift shop (these are old school Old Navy jean capris from Goodwill)
cut them into shorts ~ make sure not to cut them too short the first time, you can always cut more off later & get the perfect length
fray the bottoms of the shorts to get rid of the straight cut lines
spray paint the left side bright blue
use star stencils (found this sheet at Michael’s)
put the stencils over the blue & spray white. it takes several coats & careful spraying to get perfect stars. as you can see, these aren’t exactly picture perfect, but after a couple tries & coats you’ll get it.
spray paint the right side white
add some red lines & boom! all-American jorts.
you can even use the leftover denim to create a braided bracelet!
