    Oh, back-to-school season. Every year during this time, we can’t help but think back to art class and all those cool craft projects that had us whipping out watercolor brushes, colored pencils, and India ink.

    Luckily, we don’t have to go back to Art 101 to get our creative fix. In fact, we’ve partnered up with denim authority Levi’s® to bring you a DIY stencil job that’s totally spot-on…and just about as easy as it gets, using just some crisp white paint and a pair of perfectly faded Levi’s® 501s. And the best part is you can have all the supplies sent you from our very own R29 Shops.

    Choose from spades, hearts, or stars, then follow these easy instructions for whipping up the cutest paint patterns, ever. Your jeans will thank you.

    For more rad art vibes and inspiration check out the Levi's® #makeourmark project.
