How To Stencil Bleached Jeans
Got boring jeans? What would you say if I told you you could stencil bleach jeans for a fresh Summer look? BRING IT! This Grandma loves her skinny jeans and is always looking for the newest trend in fashion or salvaging a pair of my “holy” comfy jeans.
Jean salvaging… it could be a thing. 🙂 And a Morrocan stencil can only make them better. Fashionista!
Who would have thought that bleach would be the perfect way to stencil jeans?

STEP 1 Stencil Bleached Jeans
Add regular household bleach (full strength) to a spray mist bottle. The cheaper, the better.
Make sure you have a flat surface to work on when you’re stencil bleaching jeans.
Use your favorite stencil. This one is mine!
STEP 2 Prevent Bleach Bleeding
Next, you’ll need to place something inside the jean leg to prevent the bleach from soaking through—a barrier for better words. Well, at least that’s what I thought. But after completing this project, I really think you can skip this step. I’ll explain later in the blog. I used bubble wrap because that’s what I had.
STEP 3 Spray Stencil Adhesive
This step is optional too if you want my honest opinion. It really depends on how flat you can get your jeans to lay and how important it is to you to get that clean, crisp line. I personally like the faded not so perfect look. My jeans are surely not perfect, so anything goes with my stencil bleached jeans.
I used a tacky stencil adhesive that is repositionable and moved it from place to place as I stenciled my jeans.
STEP 4 Stencil Bleached Jeans – Applying The Bleach
Now that you have everything in place, it’s time to spray mist over the stencil with bleach lightly. Don’t over DO it! Trust me; it only takes a little bit to see results on cotton.
I didn’t take a picture of this step, but it’s straightforward. Lay a paper towel over the stencil immediately after misting the stencil with bleach. This will soak up any bleach left on the stencil and prevent it from running onto the fabric. The bleach that hits the fabric will soak into the fabric quickly. Remove the stencil immediately and reposition for the next area.
Now, remember when I said I don’t think you need a barrier inside the jean leg? I found that if you spray lightly, there is no possible way it could soak through.
But if you’re heavy-handed (you know yourself better than me), go ahead and use whatever you have for a barrier.
