how to/ diy flag shorts

this project is easy and fun ! turn your old ugly shorts into something cute and in style 
what you will need 
old pair of shorts 
fabric paint ( no it wont wash out ! so wear old clothes doing this) 
foam brush is what i like to use or a regular brush 
sand paper 
and creative ideas (;

 i used my foam brush i did the right side of the leg blue and the strips on the left i wanted a vintage worn feel if you don't paint it in solid i personally think it looks alot better distressed
 add some stars
 i had a hole punch i used a paper bag for my stencil you can also do free hand add as many as you like where ever
 for the gems this glue is the best !! fabric fusion you can get at any craft store i added on my little pocked and some red ones on the belt loops
 this is what the front looks like
 now for the back you could do the pockets the same way i personally think then its too much so i went kind of simple on the back !!! just a heart and few gems the focus point is on the front of the jeans !
 simple back i did
 here is the heart and final project put together !
please check my youtube videos out xoxoamandakisses
be blessed

diy bling it up jeans

i have a good bit of diys on youtube on how to distress jeans my user name with youtube is xoxoamandakisses and links will be below ! 

what u will need is a distressed or destroyed jeans or any jeans with holes (:

next u need fabric glue u can also sew this but i have done hundreds of pairs of jeans like this trust me the fabric glue is just as good even through washes this is the one i would recommend you can get this for 6 or 7 dollars any craft store 

 next any kind of fabric for under the holes i like tackey so i picked these tank tops i never wear but who doesn't like shinny ? if u don't use whatever fabric u like ! i also done these with metal ect ! really whatever !
 then scissors (;
 cut fabric to fit under the whole make about half inch longer on each side to alow room to glue
u can never add too much glue lol not possible (;
i mainly glue around edges u can add some in middle but i would focus on outside the edges of fabric to allow ur knee to be able to bend ect avoid glueing the middle near knee or where u will be bending
 once glue is on put into place glue doesn't dry fast so u have time to work with it !
i always glue top wait till it dries try them on make sure its how u want then stretch and glue the rest !
 will look like this (; <3
i place heavy books ect on top and let dry from 2-4 hours
overnight if u can b4 u wear them for best results
 here is what they look like on i will do a fashion blog outfit of the day tomorrow with a outfit so check that blog for how i will style this ! be creative and be blessed i added my youtube video if u like to watch rather than read also check out my other blogs i do diy/crafts or scrapbooking to makeup and cooking to coupon deals and shopping hauls thanks for the support <3 xoxoamandakisses *** will be doing a bling jean and shoes this week check back ! follow my links so u know where i am xoxo

diy picture holder , calendar , or jewelry for 8 dollars

diy in the making not done yet will do a updated picture on how mine comes out 
but here is a idea to get u started (:

first i started with a big frame ( no glass ) just frame 
good place to pick these up is michel s they do custom framing a lot of times ppl order and its not what they wanted or never pick up ! i got this for 4 dollars ! amazing deal 

also at micheal's i got these little clothes pins they would be cute painted or u could add some gems or whatever ! if u turn this into a calendar ( what i am doing ) u can glue a heart on one for valientines day or a tree for christmas ect ! then little papers with the numbers for the day ! but i got these for 1.50 a bag i picked up 2 bags 

 then u need some wire i just got this at the dollar tree whole kit for a dollar great find ! only thing i used out of here is the wire
 and lastly a hot glue gun ! this project cost 8 dollars !!
 all i did was turn the frame to the back
hot glue the wire on each side ( when one side is completely dry turn over pull as tight as u can and glue the other side
 final project looks like this i added some pics to show the idea with it but i am going to add gems all around the frame and use as a monthly calendar i will post updated pic on my facebook !
hope this gives a idea happy crafting follow my other sites !
here is the video if u need a visual
