There are few things in this world that I love more than polka dots! Okay, that a huge exaggeration and polka dots are a ways down on my list of things I love, but these polka dots sure do bump it up a few notches! :) Eeek, I love, love these jeans and I'm so excited to wear them when its a bit cooler!

You'll Need

: Jeans or Pants of some kind, Fabric paint, a pencil and some scissors!

Step One

: Snip off the end of your pencil eraser to make it nice and flat, for the perfect round dots!

Step Two

: Use the cap or other smooth surface to dip the tip of your pencil in and dab onto your jeans! I warn you this is tedious work, but the results are so worth it!

Step Three

: Let dry completely and follow instructions for proper sealing according to your fabric paints instructions. For me I had to lay some fabric over top and iron for 5 minutes!
