I made my first DIY studded collar! If you guys would like to learn how to make one too, then keep scrolling down and I'll teach you how!
These are studs I picked off of a very old studded belt that I was obsessed with wearing back in middle school. I had a hard time finding them in any arts and craft store, so I just decided to go this route instead.
Since I don't know what size they are, I decided to take a photo of it next to my lens cap for comparison. They are pretty small compared to the ones I have seen elsewhere.
My mom was so nice, she gave me one of her old Ann Taylor Button ups and it had a pretty sturdy collar so I cut it off with a pair of scissors. I just cutted it off using the original sewn line of the shirt as a guide. Yay for no measurements!
After cutting it, place the studs where you would like. I didn't have enough to stud the entire collar so I decided to just stud the tips. I'm going to save the rest to stud my denim jacket or a black collar.
And there you have it! A studded collar. It was so easy, but bending the studs into place can get a bit tricky, so be careful not to poke yourselves with the sharp edges. I used my nail to bend it back, but I've heard a lot of people used butter knives to do it. I think it's just your preference and how hard your studs are. Mines were pretty old, so I guess they bent easily.
Hope you guys liked this simple DIY project!
