DIY Fringed Hem Jeans


Denim is such a huge trend this season with distressed denim, frayed hems, fringing and even patch work denim taking the catwalk and high street by storm. I am a denim lover and I tend to spend quite a bit of money on denim to get the latest styles and the best quality. There's times however when you don't have to spend your coins and you can simply get creative and do a little bit of DIY to change some already existing items into something more on trend. This is why I'm coming at you today with a simple DIY to show you how I turned an old pair of mom jeans into some on trend fringed hem denim.

What You'll Need

  1. An old pair of jeans (preferably straight leg or mom jeans)
  2. Sharp scissors
  3. Cello tape
  4. Chalk or white pencil
  5. Measuring tape

What to do

First cut off the hem from your jeans.

Use your measuring tape to measure how high up the leg you want your fringes to go. I went for 3 and a half inches as the denim will scrunch up and twist when finished. Mark your preferred length and then place cello tape across the legs of the jeans to make sure you do not cut beyond your desired length.

Cut fringes using your scissors to your desired width; the thinner the fringes the more defined and frayed your fringes will be.

Once you're happy with your fringes, place your jeans into the washing machine. Once washed, air dry and enjoy your new fringed hem jeans.
