Olympic Denim Vest DIY And Giveaway!

Olympic fever has taken over, even here at Free People! It’s so much fun to watch and even more, it’s fun to get a little patriotic with your fashion to show support for your country! We decided that a denim vest was the perfect base piece to customize with your country’s flag for the Olympics. Though we are in the United States, we have a lot of love for Great Britain, too, and with London as this year’s Olympic host, we decided to put a Union Jack on the back of our denim vest! To show your support for the USA check out our American Flag Shorts DIY :)

olympic denim vest

What you need: a denim vest, fabric paint and painters tape. I suggest our Cut Off Denim Vest!

union jack

I used the above Union Jack found here as inspiration – I love its faded look!

The instructions for this will vary depending on what flag you customize your vest with, but make use of the painters tape to help make clean, straight lines.

I marked off the area for the large red cross first. Make sure you cover up all surrounding areas with tape so that you don’t get red paint where you don’t want it!

Now you’re ready to spray! I used red spray paint for apparel made by Simply Spray.

I actually just used a paint brush for the remainder of the Union Jack – I wanted the white to run over the red a bit to give it a faded, slightly rough look.

Using the painter’s tape, mark off where you want to make additional lines and just fill it in using a paint brush!

Ready for the best part? We’re giving this vest away! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post with your name and email address (so we can contact you if you win) and we’ll select a winner at random one week from today!
