DIY Studded Collar

Here's a very simple tutorial on how to achieve a DIY studded shirt collar - minus the designer price tag!




What I used:
Black Collared Shirt - H&M £12.99
8mm Triangle Studs in Silver - Ebay £1.79 for 100 studs
Pair of small pliers


You can choose to use square or even round studs and a good way of saving money it to remove the studs from a studded belt rather than buying them from a craft shop.



How to:
1) Taking a stud, push it firmly into the fabric
2) Carefully fold down the three prongs with a fingernail to secure the stud in place
3) Use the pliers to gently press on the backing of the stud to ensure there are no sharp prongs sticking out.
4) The studs on each collar tip don't have to be identical - just similar
5) However use the same amount of studs on each side
6) I just embellished the tips of the collar but you can keep adding - you can even cover the whole collar!





Wear your studded collared shirt tucked into denim shorts, patterned leggings or a high waist skirt. You can dress it up or down depending on the occasion. It adds a little bit of glam rock to any outfit!

Let me know if you give this a try! I'm going to invest in a few more shirts to stud too. I quite like the subtleness of this shirt, but maybe I'll go wild on the next one!

By the way this is my 100th post! I'm quite surprised I'm only just reaching 100... but here's to many more!
