Good morning guys! Today I am switching things up a bit and walking you through a DIY! I have always loved crafting and adding a little extra spice to my clothing, but I wasn’t sure if you guys would be interested in seeing the process. So let me know if you’re into this sort of thing and I’d love to keep adding posts like this! Today I’m turning a $20 Jacket from Ross, into the $150 jacket that inspired me. Hashtag ballin’ on a budget! Let’s get started shall we?!

The first step is to gather all of your materials. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Killer, slightly oversized denim jacket
  • Pearls with 1 flat side. Size is up to you, I used white 8mm I think
  • Gem Tack adhesive
  • Tweezers

First, lay out your jacket in a flat steady place. Then place your pearls BEFORE gluing them so you can get a feel for what it will look like and if you like the spacing. This step is crucial to ensuring a great finished product. Don’t just wing it!

Once you have each pearl set where you want it, use the tweezers to pick up each pearl and and apply the adhesive. Then set the pearl back down where you want it, but be sure not to use too much pressure. Let the glue do the work! Keep going until your denim jacket is a bedazzled piece of art!

Let dry at least 24 hours before taking your new baby out for a spin!

I hope you guys liked this little tutorial! It is such an easy way to jazz up your denim jacket with one of falls hottest trends. Let me know if you all want to see more posts like this!
