I have a not-so-secret obsession with ripped jeans. I just love the way it gives character to any outfit, it’s like they never go out of style ! Learning how to make your own ripped jeans is honestly a game changer; this DIY is super simple, and will allow you to make your ripped jeans exactly the way you want them.
I have learnt how to rip my jeans myself a few years ago when I was in high school, (to the great despair of my mom) and I’ve had this voice in my head telling me to rip all of my jeans since then. Which is obviously not a good idea, I have to resist to that temptation. But honestly, this post is kind of a pretext for me to make another ripped jeans ! 😉

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN RIPPED JEANS
What do you need?
The only things you need for this DIY are:
- A pair of jeans
- A pin
Pick a spot to rip, and with the sissors make at least two horizontal cuts as in the picture below.
With the pin, pull a couple of threads apart until you are able to pull the vertical threads with the tweezers.
With the tweezers, remove all od the vertical threads.
Here is how it looks once you’ve removed all of the vertical threads:
If you made more than two cuts, start again form step 2.
Pull a few threads above and below your rips, in order to make it look a bit more messy.
This is how you distress your jeans ! Make other cuts where you want your jeans to be ripped, and you will have the jeans you want. Isn’t that awesome ?
Let me know if you do your own ripped jeans ! Use #glittersandroses if you post your ripped jeans on instagram, I’ll be glad to see and like your pictures. ♥︎
