13 DIY Jeans On TikTok That Will Make Your Outfit One-Of-A-Kind
Between our love for crafting and the fact that we cannot stop wearing jeans, upcycled denim DIYs are one of our favorite ways to spend an afternoon. Jeans are great because based on the wash and the cut, they can be worn with everything from a sweater and sneakers to a show-stopping (and easy) Halloween costume. These crafty upgrades from TikTok will turn your favorite denim into a pair that's literally one-of-a-kind.

Baggy jeans can be difficult to work with because while they look trendy, you constantly have to make sure they're not falling down. This DIY eliminates that problem.

An eye-catching design that doesn't require sewing or iron-on patches? Yes, please.

While this isn't necessarily a creativity DIY, knowing how to fix your jeans when they're suffering from some wear and tear will save you a ton of money.
Take some inspiration from this TikTok user and gather up fabric scraps, socks, and more for these jeans. Make them monochromatic or touch on every color of the rainbow.
This take on the flare jeans adds another layer of color that we can't get enough of.
