DIY Studded Jeans or Leggings

DIY Studded Jeans or Leggings Tutorial via lilblueboo.com

I added a little flair to a pair of Boo’s black skinny jeans recently…..by adding metal studs down the sides and onto the back pockets.  Here are the basic supplies needed to add them to your own jeans or leggings:

Note: My metal studs used were 4mm Hex shapes from Dharma Trading. You can use an iron to apply them but the easiest way is with a HotFix Applicator. If you plan on applying a lot of rhinestones or studs in the near future I recommend investing in one!

First I used a piece of chalk to mark 1″ marks all the way down the jeans:

    I totally wouldn’t be able to pull off the whole stud look- but Boo looks great! And that t-shirt is adorable :)

    Do the studs stay on after a washing and drying? I love studs and such but I’d hate to spend the time just to have them fall off like the iron on ones. Thanks for the great idea and info.
