DIY Studded Shorts

I thought I'd have a go at studding a pair of denim shorts! I want to give a new edge on an old pair of shorts I have and make them more unique. I think studding a pair of shorts is a great way to make them stand out, especially if they are black and plain like mine!

What do you need?
- An old pair of shorts (or any old shorts)
- A blunt knife
- A packet of studs (mine are from ebay here)
They took a while to come in the post but cost about £3 and came from Thailand so you can't argue!

They come in a pack of 100 (so hopefully they will last a while!)
All you have to do is position the stud where you want it on your shorts (I chose on the right hand side front pocket) and press the stud in using your hand, turn the shorts to the inside and press the backs down with your knife (use a blunt knife like mine!) It's tricky at first but after a few goes you will get the hang of it!

I'm thinking about doing a bit more studding on this pocket but as a first attempt I am so so happy with what it looks like right now!
Studding things is my new favourite way to update my wardrobe!
Are you going to try it? Have you tried studding items of clothing?
