Studded Denim Shorts DIY!

Hi Ladies!

It’s a rainy day here so what better way to spend it than customizing a pair of cut offs?! So here is a quick DIY!

– Studs of Various Sizes
– Seam Ripper
– Denim Shorts

Lets get started! Adding the studs is easy! You simply push them into the fabric and fold the prongs in on the back side.

I began laying them out in a cross pattern! 

  I then added rows of studs on the opposite side because I felt it was kind of bare!

Once all  the studs were added, I decided to distress the shorts. Here is quick step by step on how to add some controlled holes and tears.

With your  shorts laid out in front of you use your seam ripper (or a pair of sharp scissors) to cut two horizontal slits, the distance of the slits is up to you!

Turn the shorts inside out and begin to separate each horizontal thread, by pulling it towards the slit you made. Be sure to keep the horizontal thread in tact. You should begin to see the ends of vertical threads pop out.

   Once you have enough of the vertical threads exposed begin to pull them free.

When you turn the jeans right side out this is what your hole should look like! Continue to manipulate and snip threads until you have the desired size and shape of your hole!

Here are the finished shorts!

I added some studs to the back pockets as a last minute addition, they were screaming for some stud love!

      1. Cool! I’m not familiar with Michael’s (it’s not available in my area I’m afraid) but I’ll try buying from studsandspikes.com. I checked it and their designs are awesome! Thanks for sharing this. 😀
