DIY: studded shirt

DIY Studded Shirt Hi! I'm Stephanie from Henry Happened, and I'm excited to share fashion DIYs here on MBG as one of the newest contributors. If you have ideas on DIYs that you'd like to see, definitely let me know! For our first project, we're updating an everyday basic - the white button up!

DIY STudded Shirt 

When it's cold outside I am a big fan of layering. At any given time I'm usually wearing about three shirts! So I like my layers to have a little pizzazz. An easy way to spruce up a plain button up is with studs. This DIY Studded Shirt is simple (no prongs to stick your fingers!), chic and easy on the wallet too.

Fair warning: Iron on studs are a little addictive. They're so easy you'll want to stud everything! And before you know it you'll be half way to buying a Harley.

You will need:
  • A plain button-up shirt. I like the look on a white shirt but it would also look great on denim.
  • Iron on studs. You can find these at any craft store.
  • An iron

DIY Button-up Shirt with Studs 

Start by cutting the studs into individual pieces. Then remove the black backing (but not the top plastic!) and place them evenly along the middle of your sleeve cuffs.

Then carefully flip over the sleeve so you don't mess up the placement of the studs. And iron according to the package directions.

When the studs have cooled (trust me they're hot!) you can peel off the plastic on top. That's it! 

DIY Studded Collar 

 I also added three studs to my shirt collar. Again, all you do is stick them on the fabric in the pattern you want and iron them on. So easy!  

Are you a fan of studs? What would you put them on?
