DIY studded shorts!








I had been thinking about making my own shorts for a while and decorating them with studs and paint, but never got my way around it until now. I didn't know where to buy the studs until I saw Una's DIY studded collar here.

I first cut my old black H&M pants (not so black anymore...) and bleached the ends. I then added the studs under the pockets, and finally painted little dots on them and the heart on the back pocket.

I'm not sure if I really like them, but this was my first try and wanted to show you guys. I have many more studs left so I'll keep on trying to make more things. I'm thinking about making a clutch next? I think it'll be cute!

Thank you so much for leaving us such sweet comments <3
