How to Make a Fringe Denim Jacket: Easy & Cheap DIY June 16, 2021

This upcycle is extremely beginner-friendly and will cost you less than $5! In this post, I will show you how to add a cute fringe detail to any denim jean jacket. One of my favorite parts of this thrift flip is that if you decide you don't want the fringe anymore, it's very simple to remove with a seam ripper! Total time to complete this project: 15 minutes!


JACKET: You can start with a jacket you own, find one at the thrift store, or buy a new one. I used one I already owned!

FRINGE: Next you will need some fringe trim. I found mine at my local fabric store.

1. Cut fringe the width of the back of your jacket.

2. Topstitch the fringe onto your jacket to attach it.

When you are done, it should look like this! This upcycle is so simple and you can even swap out the fringe for different colors if you'd like! Hope you liked this upcycle tutorial! Comment if you have any questions.
