Just a really quick way to jazz up some old shorts today. I don’t wear shorts very often but I’ve been liking them more lately for around the house. I had some boring ones which were laying around so I decided to make them a little more fun so they didn’t feel as much like pyjamas and I could feed my lazy inspiration addiction a bit.


For this tutorial you will need:

  • Old shorts
  • Glitter
  • Fabric glue
  • Chain (optional)
Lay your shorts out and make sure to put some paper down first so it’s easier to clean up later.
You need fabric glue for this, something which is washable. I’m using one from Helmar and it works really well. I’ve put these through the wash several times now and nothing has gone astray.
Paint a thick line of glue onto your fabric and make sure it gets into the fibres as much as you can.
Sprinkle glitter over the top. If you want to make sure it’s going to stick, you can mush it into the glue with your finger but that can get a bit messy!
Continue all over the jeans. I decided to only do one front panel and a back panel. I also added some gold chain around the edges to give it even more bling.
Once it’s completely dry (leave it over night if possible) set it through the washing machine with nothing else in there to get rid of any stray glitter.
All done! Comfy and much more sparkly! Sparkle for the win!
Definitely feeling a little more fancy at home now though probably not enough to actually wear those heels all the time >_>

Glitter for the win! Hope you guys enjoyed the quick craft!
