Transform your plain jeans into a pair of designer dream jeans. Sprinkle flowers on the pockets and butterflies along the seams. Have fun and amaze your friends!

  • 1.

    Do flowers give you power? Do you love hearts? Are you dazzled by stars? Choose your favorite theme. Select your favorite colors. Decorate jeans that are 100% cotton for best results. Sketch your jeans design ideas on paper with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils.

  • 2.

    Use Crayola Fabric Markers and/or Fabric Crayons to decorate your jeans.

  • 3.

    Decide where you will apply your permanent designs on your jeans. Insert newspaper or cardboard inside your jeans so the colors do not bleed through to the other side.

  • 4.

    Draw your designs directly on the jeans. Use colors that show up well on the denim. Recap fabric markers as soon as possible and store in a horizontal position. Crayola® Fabric Markers stain clothing and surfaces, CLOSE ADULT SUPERVISION IS REQUIRED.

  • 5.

    Ask an adult to heat set the color. Set the iron on cotton. Cover ironing area with paper. Iron on the reverse side, using a back and forth motion, for 4 minutes. Another way to heat set the color is to place your jeans in the dryer on the hottest setting for 30 minutes.

  • 6.

    To prevent bleeding of fabric marker colors, wash your jeans separately, in cold water, for the first three times. When needed after that, wash your jeans inside out in warm or cold water. Dry on low heat.
