I have been such a busy girl recently, that I have completely neglected my blog. I am sure the majority of us are in the same situation. With the end of uni exams I promised myself to return to blogging, but with going away for a month (which I will talk about in my next post) I have failed to do so. No reason to dwell on it now as I am finally writing this post. I am sure all of us have seen a lot of studs everywhere, from studded jackets to studded shoes, it has become one of the biggest trends. Unfortunately studded items are not cheap, so I have decided to attempt what I have seen many bloggers do, STUD MY OWN SHORTS. I am not going to lie, it is a very boring and tiring job, however the result will make you happy.
All you need is a pair of shorts. I like the look of Levis 501, which you can get from a majority of vintage shops, but of course you can use any pair, or even cut up your own.
You will also need some studs. They are very easy to find in a craft shop or on ebay. I've brought my from ebay for about £3 for 100 studs. The amount of studs you need will depend on what kind of ornament you are going for. I have personally used 100 studs.
You will need a knife or something you can use to push in the backs of the studs once you got them through the material.
And the last but not least... You will need a lot of patience. This particular ornament took me around 2 hours. The two hours are definitely worth it though. Give it a try!
