DIY : Painted Jeans Cherry Blossoms

I have this pair of oversized mom jeans that’s very comfy, very baggy but hardly ever worn. It just look so dull  and boring :

It really need a makeover. So I went on a Pinterest quest and found this tutorial from Brit and Co :

It’s a howto to make Blake Lively’s Cherry Blossom Boyfriend Jeans. The original version is quite pricey but it also gives back part  of its proceeds to a good cause.

This was quite a fun project. It’s okay to get messy so it was very relaxing to make. Things I did differently was adding textile medium to the acrylic paint and using a lighter shade for the flowers. I painted 2 layers of white for the flowers before adding the pink :

… and I also used a permanent marker to draw out the branches before covering them up in dark brownish paint :
