How to Make a Fringe Denim Jacket: Easy & Cheap DIY

How to make a DIY fringe denim jacket. How to add fringe to a jacket. Cheap and easy upcycle clothing.

This upcycle is extremely beginner-friendly and will cost you less than $5! In this post, I will show you how to add a cute fringe detail to any denim jean jacket. One of my favorite parts of this thrift flip is that if you decide you don't want the fringe anymore, it's very simple to remove with a seam ripper!

Total time to complete this project: 15 minutes!


JACKET: You can start with a jacket you own, find one at the thrift store, or buy a new one. I used one I already owned! I personally love oversized jean jackets like the ones I've found below.

FRINGE: Next you will need some fringe trim. I found mine at my local fabric store but I've linked a couple options below!
