DIY: Studded Sweater

Hey guys!
So today I bring you another DIY. I am so excited about this one because it turned out way cuter than what I had anticipated. I love when that happens! I decided to spruce up an old sweater I've had for 97154587130 years. I kept it around because I knew I wanted to do something to it (I just didn't know what). So with the stud craze going around and the fact that accentuated shoulders are in right now, why not stud the shoulders of this old sweater, right? I think this is the perfect way to jazz up any old clothing item. I love the edginess of studs, though, with this, I don't feel like it's too edgy. If that makes sense. Anyways, I hope you enjoy and try it out for yourself. It's super fun and easy to do and it only took me less than half an hour to do the whole thing.

The Materials:
  • Old Sweater
  • Studs (I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby)
  • Knife
First, decide how you want the studs to look on the sweater.

Next, begin placing studs through the sweater and folding the prongs into each other. Make sure the prongs are laid flat to avoid scratching yourself. I also suggest starting along the seam of the sweater to guide you in a straight line.
Continue with the rest of the studs until you are satisfied with the results.
Here is how mine turned out! :)
Here's what it looks like on the inside of the sweater.
I love the studded shoulders!

The studs add an edginess feel to the once boring sweater. But the light pink scarf makes it look slightly girly at the same time.

Have you ever re-vamped an old clothing item?
