An alternative to tie dyeing old jeans is color blocking, especially if you want to add color to just a particular part of the jeans as opposed to all over. Color blocking is as easy as it gets when it comes to updating old jeans because it involves just a few simple steps and supplies. In terms of the supplies, all you need are a pair of jeans, fabric paint, a paint brush, some masking tape and you are set to go!
