Hi! I managed to take pictures today even though it was cold and rainy outside. It seems like every time that I straighten my hair, it rains! Anyways, today I wore a DIY studded denim vest.
Supplies- Denim vest and about 100 studs (I purchased mine from Forest Era on etsy, their studs are good quality and reasonably priced.)
Cost- Mine cost me about $10-$15. Thrifting a vest will help to keep the cost of this DIY low.
Time- About an hour
How to- Gather your materials and set up your work space. Lay your denim vest (or any kind of clothing) down flat. Next mark on the denim vest where you want to place your studs and decide on what pattern you will use. Are you going to use all pyrmaid studs? All circular studs? A mix of different studs? Then add the studs to the vest or item of clothing. It's hard for me to explain how to add studs but it is actually a very easy process. You will most likely be able to know how to apply the studs just by looking at them. If you don't understand how to apply the studs, this is a great tutorial. Once that is done, you will have your finished product. Voila! A new, trendy piece for a fraction of the designer price.
