Purchasing distressed jeans from a store can be pricey, and the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans can be impossible (without Sheplers western store online, of course). But, what if we told you that you can distress your jeans in a few easy steps? Well you heard it here first – you can distress your jeans right at home!

What You’ll Need

  • A pair of jeans
  • A sharp pair of scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Sandpaper
  • Razor
  • Pencil or chalk
  • Washing machine & dryer

How to Distress Your Jeans

  1. Put the jeans on so you can have an idea of the areas in which you wish to distress. Use the pencil or chalk to make a mark around the areas.
  2. Use the sandpaper over those areas for a soft and extra worn out look. You can skip this step if you wish to create minimally distressed jeans.
  3. Use the scissors to cut straight, horizonal slits over the areas you wish to distress. The slits should be ½ an inch to ¾ of an inch from each other.
  4. There are synthetic threads called indigo threads – you’ll know them when you see them. Use the tweezers to pull the indigo threats, but only in the areas you’ve cut (it’s okay if you don’t get them all).
  5. Use the razor to fray the pockets and other edges you want to fray by moving the razor back and forth on the edge.
  6. After cutting all the areas you want to cut and have pulled out most of the indigo threads, put your jeans in the washer, on the cold water setting, to create organic-looking frays.
  7. Once they’re washed put them in the dryer to further natural distressing!
