Fash Without Cash! DIY: Studded shirt for a fiver!


You'll need some studs. These were 99p from Ebay, you can find them here
I was a bit safe with the collar, but if you order a couple or packets & have alot of
 patience, you could stud the whole collar!
My stud-buddy Lil doing her shirt.
The studs are quite easy to push into the fabric, as the prongs are fairly sharp
('scuse the shoddy nail polish). Then use scissors to push the prongs inwards on the other side!



Tres Jolie! I was well chuffed with this DIY, because I'd never studded anything before.
Took just over an hour, and cost me £5.99. I used about 70 studs on this one!


 So here's my first proper blog post! Still getting used to everything though, so be patient with me. Expect me to be posting quite regularly though. I've been trying out quite a lot of DIY 'post worthy creativeness lately, and I'm getting all excited for Autumn/Winter because I'm seeing lots of beautiful things to blog about.

    1. It's so cheap! I got my studs here- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170880004031?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

      But ebay have a ton of different designs, depending how thick, or spikey or flat you want them. Whatever you want, they got it, for less than the price of a milkshake. Go nuts! And link me up if you stud a shirt yourself, I'd love to see it (:
