DIY: Acid Washed Ombre Jeans

Do you own a pair of jeans that you bought a year or maybe 2 years ago and you don't want to wear it again because "It's so BOOOOORING and so so Last year", well instead of throwing it away why don't you makeover it (haha fyi I'm a fan of watching makeover shows) by this simple and easy DIY project that will surely make you love your boooring old jeans.
So I had this pair of jeans that I bought last last year, this jeans became one of my on the go look (paired it with a tank top or t-shirt and I'm good to go). 


Things you'll need:
Old pair of Jeans or if you want you can buy a cheap pair of jeans. 
Bleach
plastic Basin
Gloves
Spray bottle
Scrub
white paint for paint splatter effect (optional)


The acid washing itself is very easy and you can do it in many ways. This is how I Acid washed my jeans with an ombre effect at the bottom of it. 

1. First put a elastic rubber band on the knee part of your jeans or maybe a little higher it's up to you.
2. Next wet the bottom part you want to acid wash.
3. prepare your plastic basin and bleach, put 3 cups of water and 3 cups of clorox then mix it well (be sure your hands are protected by gloves).
4.Soak the bottom part of your jeans, make sure every bottom part of your denim is soaked in the solution.
5. Now all you have to do is wait for an hour or 30 minutes, you will noticed that the bottom part became lighter.
6. after the fifth step you can now remove your jeans from the plastic basin and put it in a table or any flat surface where you can scrub the bottom part (so that it becomes even, we don't want patches)
7. (optional) you can use a spray bottle to make this DIY project easier just spray spray and spray
8. When happy with the outcome, rinse off the bleach and then throw your jeans in the washing machine.
9. REMOVE.DRY.DONE








DONE!!!
