I came across this Topshop studded denim shirt (that is currently sold out) and got inspired to make my own. I bought my studs from StudsandSpikes.com for a pack of 100 gold studs for only $4.80. I then went to the thrift store and was able to find this light wash denim shirt for only $3.
A few pointers I would give for this DIY studding project is to definitely use a pair of scissors or a knife instead of your fingers to make sure you secure the studs the right way. Also do NOT do this on the same day you polish your nails or get a manicure because it will ruin them.
Here are the 4 super easy steps pic by pic:
And here is the finished product.
