painted pant legs

Call me crazy but I love paint. I love it on the wall, I love it on canvas, I love it on paper and I even love it on my clothes! And while I end up with paint on my clothes after a creative session, I love messing around with simple ways to use paint to turn basic clothing into something funky! Lately I've been playing around with my pant legs...I know kind weird but I love that with a little paint you can transform a pair of pants into something totally unique.

I've found that the key to painting your clothing is use fabric paint and I prefer the Tulip Soft Matte Paints. They are washable, non toxic and once dry the paint is soft and moveable. 

I used a pair of black pants from Target. 

And then I added lots of layer of colorful brushtrokes just at the bottom the pant legs.

The result is super funky (and not for everyone) but I LOVE that a simple outfit can be transformed with lots of color and a little creativity!

Looking for some inspiration for altering that clothing?
Here are some of my favorites-

I love this! I am always looking for a new way to (affordably) add color to my wardrobe. This is such a great idea and so well executed!! I cant wait to try this. Thank you!!

I really like your new haircut. The pants are cute. I would love to see you paint a pair of denim with some flowers.

You are adorable and beautiful in your painted trousers. For sure, you can pull off the look. (Love your hair too)
Did you do a little practice trial?

I used markers on a pair of old bell bottom jeans and made a hippy style pair of pants that I wore for Halloween. So fun. They remind me of my teenage years in the 70s.
