The bleached denim trend is still kicking and looked easy enough to tryout on a pair of jeans that needed some reviving. With a little inspiration from some Free People jeans I've seen, I decided to experiment with studs to give them more of the rock-and-roll look.

This is a really easy project, but definitely worth practicing a few times before trying this on your favorite jeans.

Step 1: Materials

1 pair of gloves
1 bucket
1 pair dark jeans
2 rubber bands
1 large bowl or other liquid container
1 bottle bleach
1 measuring cup

I made these! My fav jeans got a bleach spot right on the butt and I couldn't wear then for two years. But I did this and I'm wearing then right now!!!! I just wish I'd seen this earlier cuz they became a little short :P
That's awesome! Try cuffing them, that's always a good way to help with an imperfect length.
The "putting on the gloves" photo is awesome. And the jeans look good.
ahahahahahaha, sick.
I remember doing this in the 80s :D <br />Love what you did with the studs too!
