How do you feel about your wardrobe right now? Are there any items that you feel like you can’t wear? Maybe it’s the wrong season, or maybe you just don’t like the way it looks on you anymore. That’s okay! Now, instead of tossing those pieces away, how about giving them a new lease on life by customizing them? This DIY camo jacket makeover will show you how to take an old jacket and turn it into something new again. Make a camo jacket with patches. It's all the rage.
Don't Take Yourself too Seriously
Have some fun with fashion. Go wild and let your personality shine through. Art is subjective, so there is no wrong way to do it. Just enjoy the process. Remember that it's a creative endeavor and don't be afraid to get messy. You're not creating art for a museum or gallery; you're creating art for yourself. And if you end up not liking what you made, think of the satisfaction in knowing that you gave something new a try.
How to Design
First, gather your supplies: you'll need a jacket in army fatigue, fabric paint, a needle and thread, and some fun patches. Next, decide on a design for your jacket. You can go for a simple look with just a few key patches, or go all out with an intricate design. Once you have your design mapped out, start painting and attaching your patches. Use the needle and thread to sew the patches onto the jacket so they're nice and secure.
Now that you have created your masterpiece, make sure you keep it cute (K.I.C)! Wear is dressed up or casually. It's up to you. Put on your new custom camo jacket, head outside, find some friends to play army with, and get ready to get camouflage-crazy! Own your authenticity and be proud of who you are and how uniquely you are made.
