DIY Denim Cut Out Jeans I have been loving this cut out look since last year. When I did find ones I liked they either cost too much or did not fit me the way I wanted. I haven't been able to find the perfect pair. So I decided to create my own. Materials Needed: 1 Pair of High waisted Jeans 1 pair of sharp scissors 1 sharpie Steps: 1. Try the pants on, use the sharpie to mark the area you plan on cutting out. 2. Take the jeans off and cut the desired holes. 3. Angle your scissors in downward position and drag them along your marked area. 4. Cut and fray 5. After you have your desired look, wash and dry. 6. Throw on your jeans on and Slayyyyy ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ If you like Short DIYs like this let me know in the comments. I hope you enjoy.
