DIY mint jeans

I have been looking for a good pair of mint jeans for a long time! And everytime I found a pair they were either sold out in my size OR way too much money…so the next best thing? Dye them myself :)

HOW TO DYE YOUR OWN PANTS MINT

These steps are so simple and would work for any color…….
{for best results follow the direction on your dye packet}

grab a pair of white pants that you know you love the fit of…it’s ok if they are a little sheer the dye helps that :)

I used GREEN VERT from TULIP dye {available at hobby lobby}

fill your washer or pot as directed on the packaging…yes I did include the salt to the water as it says to.

I know – it looks really scary…but I promise they will turn out ok!

after letting them soak for desired time drain the water and proceed to wash as normal

I wanted mine light so I only let them soak for 5 -10 min instead of the 30 min

I kinda worried after I saw them in the washer – they looked neon green! great I ruined a perfectly pair of white pants :( BUT after I washed them and dried them they looked PERFECT!

see :)

they even match my mint nail polish perfectly!

and there you have it…easy peasy DIY  MINT jeans! for only $3 more than the cost of the white pants {just think if they were old you have brand new pants for only mere  dollars}
