DIY Denim Stud Shirt

Shirt - Primark (DIY)
Shoes - Ella Tino Boutique
Disco Pants - American Apparel
Temporary Tattoo - Inkwear
DIY Sunday's are what it's all about in my opinion! I've been wanting to do this for soooo long but just hadn't gotten round to it. Until today. I like to have a project to keep me busy, once I get an idea in my head, that's me in the zone and I won't stop until it's complete! Saying that - this little project took me a grand total of 7 minutes. No joke. Quick with some great results!
You will need: one denim shirt (mine was from Primark, so I wasn't too bothered if I messed it up or not!) and a variety of studs. I took the studs off an old belt I had (I think we all went through that phase of grunge in our teens and had one of those studded belts, which are now back in fashion!) All you do is push the studs through the material and fold the ends down and that's literally it! Due to the material being denim and thicker than a normal shirt, even if you place one of the studs in the wrong place, it doesn't matter because you can't see where you had previously pushed it through - ace! And they slide through really easily as well! However, if doing this DIY on a chiffon or silk shirt, it may leave some holes where you have pushed the studs through. 
Anyway, I hope you like! I'm still playing around with my Inkwear tattoos - this one is by far my favourite!! Annoyingly, it's making me want to get a real one but MUST RESIST! Fashion is temporary - tattoos are forever and all!
