DIY Studded & Ripped Shorts

Monday, March 30, 2015

Hi, lovelies! I just finished attaching some studs on my pink shorts and want to show you how it turned out. I've worked on these shorts for the longest time because I've taken everything really slow and step-by-step since I don't plan on using them until a special occasion later this year anyways.

These shorts used to be plain pink shorts with a few rips in them. I got them from Dreamv a really long time ago. I wanted to spice them up a bit by adding studs in some of the pockets and also add some more rips in them. I watched a tutorial on how to make rips in denim shorts/pants and it was surprisingly easy to do, even though I failed a few times. However, practice makes perfect! As for the studs, you can get them really cheap at eBay and when attaching them you pretty much just "pop" them on where you want them and then push down the little spikes on the back of the studs in the back to secure them. I additionally painted the buttons, which were originally gold, with silver nail polish to make them match the studs (I really wanted them to be silver!). I highly recommend to try it out yourself if you want to spice up a boring old pairs of shorts or jeans.  It takes some time but it's so fun and easy to do!

I'm pretty much done with customizing these shorts now; All I have left to do is fraying the edges a little bit more. I really like how they're turning out! What do you think?
Thanks for reading and bye for now, lovelies!
