DIY: Studding your Levi’s
1. Grab a stud. With the bottom of your jeans cuffed as high as you want them, place the stud near to the cuffed material and push it so the prongs go through to the other side of the fabric. Be careful not go all the way through the jeans, just enough to secure the cuff. With your jewelry pliers, fold down each prong of the stud. Run your finger over the back to check for any pieces that may be sticking out, flatten any problems.
2. Repeat this process with the pattern of your choice. Do the same on the other cuff.
You can do these cool studded add-ons on any denim item you wish, such as denim jackets, skirts, and even bags. Don’t forget to check out discounts on Studentrate.com!
