Since the trend started, I've been wanting to DIY one for myself. When I found these pair of distressed jeans at a market I knew I had to do it.
What you'll need: A pair of old or thrifted jeans, scissors, permanent marker and tweezers.

 1. I started off by hemming my jeans because they were a tad bit too long. Put the jeans on and mark with your permanent marker where you want to cut it off.
