DIYDIY: Studded Shoes!

I hope you guys are ready for yet another stud-ly DIY project because this one is my favorite and I almost couldn’t wait to share it with you! Studded shoes add sass to any outfit and they can be worn so many ways that having a pair in your closet is a must. When studding shoes, it’s important to pick a pair with thin enough material to push the studs through. I chose to stud the outsides of these cute oxford heels with some gold star-shaped studs mixed in with tiny pyramid studs and they became an instant favorite.
 
Materials needed:
  • Various shapes/sizes of studs
  • Clothing item you’d like to stud (cardi, denim cutoffs, booties, etc.)

DIYDIY: Studded Shorts!

Sometimes it’s easy to get bored with things in our closets, but before you start making a donate pile, consider studding! Studding is such an easy way to spruce up an old item. Almost any item can be studded but the trick is finding the best way to arrange the studs on whatever piece you use. I took this pair of shorts and arranged a pretty pattern of pyramid and heart-shaped studs to give them an edgy look while still keeping the feminine flair.  
 
Materials needed:
  • Various shapes/sizes of studs
  • Clothing item you’d like to stud (cardi, denim cutoffs, booties, etc.)

Here are some more in depth instructions just in case:
  1. Map out your preferred arrangement of studs on the piece you’re studding and take a photo of it. Use the photo as a guide to make sure that you keep the spacing/pattern consistent throughout the piece. 
  2. Press and attach studs according to your guide. Don’t forget to push the prongs in using a flat, hard tool like the end of a screwdriver or the end of a butter knife to make sure that they don’t poke out. 
Don’t be afraid to get really creative with your stud patterns. You don’t even have to limit yourself to standard pyramid studs. Use heart or star-shaped studs to make your piece extra cute or add spikes for a fierce Gaga-esque look.
