DIY Distressed Denim



Summer is the best time to wear denim shorts, especially distressed ones to add more character to your outfit. However, distressed denim shorts can often times be prices from upwards of $40+, and ain't nobody got money to spend on something that you can easily make at home by yourself! To achieve this simple look, you will need the following supplies:

1) box cutter/sharp knife
2) pen
3) tweezer
4) scissors 

With the help of some YouTube tutorial videos like this and this, I was able to follow along and complete my denim shorts! Mine took about 2 hours to complete, but that's because I have never done anything like this before. I'm sure with practice, you will be able to finish within an hour! Though the process was tedious, the outcome of the shorts definitely paid off!

I am so much more inspired to do more DIY projects, and I cannot wait to distress more of my jeans! Not only are you saving tons of money by doing it yourself, but you also get the satisfaction of knowing that you did it all by yourself. You also have to luxury to design the rips and placements of the rips to cater to your own taste. Don't spend your summer watching TV or on the Internet all the time, pick up some supplies and create your own pair of distressed denim shorts!
