Simply Stenciled Jeans

Simply Stenciled Jeans


Black & silver are always in style. Add new life to old jeans with simple spray painted stencil accents from Krylon.



  • Krylon Brushed Metallic - Nickel (#51255)
  • Krylon Easy-Tack™ Repositionable Adhesive - Clear (#7020)
  • Fleur De Lis stencil set (Delta Creative)
  • Plain black denim jeans
  • Plain scrap paper (with no printing or color on it — white copy paper works great)
  • Painter’s tape
  • Thick cardboard sheet (at least 13” X 19”)



  1. Apply Easy Tack to back of stencil and press firmly to one side of upper jean leg near seam. Place cardboard sheet under the jeans and stencil and carefully fold excess fabric underneath. Mask off areas you do not want painted with paper and painter’s tape.
  2. Spray over one side of scroll design with Satin Nickel paint, then carefully remove stencil and let dry.
  3. Reposition stencil on jeans so that the other side of the scroll design meets up with the first one, mask off, paint, then let dry.
  4. Repeat process to create just one scroll on the other lower jean leg. Let dry completely.

I love this. But how do you make the paint permanent so you can wash them?

I wouldn't use the paint they suggested,you can use acrylic craft paint.Might help if you mixed a fabric medium w/h the paint to make it adhere better.
