How To Put Holes In Your Jeans
Do you want to put holes in your jeans so you can get that distressed, trendy look? Are you tired of overpaying for this particular style? If so, you’ll be delighted to know that it’s easier than ever to put holes in your jeans without the headache and hassle of ineffective methods. If you’re ready to turn your jeans into trendy articles of clothing, read on!
To put holes in your jeans, you will need:
- A thick board of wood
- Cheese grater
- Razor blade or knife
- Washable marker
- The first step in putting holes in your jeans is marking exactly where you’d like the holes to be. Put the jeans on and use your washable marker to mark where exactly you’ll want the holes in your jeans to be. You can mark anywhere you’d like to, including the knees, the seams, under the buttocks area, etc. It’s recommended that you put the jeans on to do this because you can get an exact placement of your holes. You don’t want to try to mark the knees without the jeans on because you might find that the knee holes are far away from your actual knees.
- Once you’ve made the markings, it’s time to take the jeans off and begin preparing the jeans for the holes. Lay the jeans across a work space, and place the board under the first spot you will work on. Next, use the cheese grater and rub it back and forth across the area. Depending on how distressed you want the jeans to look (and how big the hole you’d like there to be), you will need to either rub firmly or gently. You will need to keep rubbing until the area is apparently frayed. You don’t want to open any holes in your jeans just yet, though. After you’re finished, keep moving onto the next areas and repeat.
- Once you’re finished, it’s time to throw your jeans into the washer. When the jeans are washing, the marker’s marks will wash out, and the washing machine will do the rest of the work by being hard on the vulnerable, frayed areas.
- Once the jeans have finished washing and drying, you should find that holes have been created. You should notice the small, white strings of fabric around the edges of the holes as well as some strands going across the hole. If the washing machine did not achieve this effect, try washing again.
- If your washing machine didn’t happen to finish the process up, use the razor blade or knife and run it across the areas to help open them up a bit. Once you’ve done this, throw them in the washing machine again. Once they’re finished washing and drying, your jeans should now look amazing and ready to be worn.
