Pearl embellished everything is all over the ‘gram! From denim jackets to jeans, even baseball hats, if it can’t move, stick some pearls on it. The minute I saw my favorite blogger (Courtney Kerr, BTW) in pearl embellished jeans, I knew I had to DIY my own. This DIY is perfect for denim jeans or a jacket. Though this DIY pearl embellished denim requires a bit of sewing, it’s as easy as sewing on a button.

Supplies


DIY Pearl Embellished Denim

  • Start by laying a jacket/jeans out flat and placing the pearls in a desired pattern. Use chalk (easier to remove than ink) and make tiny dots under the pearls. Remove the pearls and place to the side. (I skipped this step because I wanted a more cascading, waterfall look.)
  • Cut a piece of thread 12-16 inches long. Thread a needle and double knot the ends of the thread.
  • From the underside of the jacket or jeans, push the needle up through the denim using the chalk marks as guidance.

  • Thread a pearl onto the needle. Then, Thread the needle tightly through and back into the denim, as close to the first hole as possible. Thread back through a second time (and maybe even a third if the pearl feels unsecured).
  • Wrap the thread three times around the base of the pearl then thread back through the denim. On the underside, tie in a double knot and cut off excess thread.

  • Repeat until all the chalk marks have been covered. I started out with all of one color then gradually added on so each side would be be even.
  • Tip: If your sewing skills or lacking or you’re short on time, use flat backed pearls like these and Quick Grip.
