My little sister bought 100 studs for $4 last year, and we just found them a few days ago! Don’t you love finding things you forgot you even had? It’s almost like a little present to yourself (:
I decided to stud an oversized light blue button-up shirt I’ve had hanging around in my closet. I was on the verge of getting rid of it, but I knew that studs would be the perfect way to bring the shirt back to life!
[ The boring plain blue shirt. Pick a shirt in your closet that hasn't seen any outside light in a while. ]
[ The tools: 2-prong pyramid studs, a ruler, and a pencil. ]
[ My little sister put the studs in a salt shaker to keep them all together and accessible. You can buy cheap and quality studs here. ]
[ Find which area of the shirt you would like to stud - the collar, pockets, etc. Then use a ruler and pencil to mark out every inch and a half (this depends on the size of your studs). Repeat marks half an inch below your first line. ]
[ Place the top prong into the top hole and the bottom prong in to the bottom hole. Turn cloth over and press the prongs together, enclosing the stud. Repeat until all studs are in. ]
[ And there you have a studded shirt that can compete with all the pricer versions at Zara's and Guess. ]
[ Time to take a step back and admire your handiwork. Pair your shirt with black skinnies and a rockin' pair of heels and you'll be all set to sashay your way around town! ]
