Hi everyone! It’s Jenni from I Spy DIY, back with a series of DIY projects all around denim this Back to School season. My first project? A destroyed denim jacket. I used a men’s denim jacket so guys can even get in on the crafting action with their girlfriends and girls, you can wear it for that “taken from the boys” look.

What you need:
AEO Denim Jacket
What to do:
Step One: Slice the shoulders and top back of your jacket in parallel lines with box cutter.
Step Two: Cut line in the inner arm of your jacket the with your scissors.
Step Three: Cut off the bottom hem.
Step Four: Rough up all your cuts by rubbing with sandpaper. Then, wash and dry your jacket twice.
Step Five: Put out the individual blue vertical threads with your tweezers to revel the white threads. The first one can be difficult but the ones after that come out super easy!
