DIY Denim Studded Collar: The Perfect Fall Accessory

Looking to add a little badass to your look this fall? A simple studded denim collar can zing up an outfit in a snap, whether worn free-floating with a low-neck top or as a faux-collar on a button-up shirt. The best part? You can make it yourself in about 25 minutes.

Step 1. Find an old denim shirt at your favorite thrift store, or your closet. Be sure the shirt’s collar is thick enough to hold studs without tearing.

Step 2. Carefully cut the collar away from the shirt as shown.

Step 3. Gather your studs and small-tipped round nose pliers.

Tip: shop Etsy for deals on studs and embellishments. I used 34 total—your count will depend on the desired look.

Step 4. Place your first stud on the collar. Use the sames to guide you.

Step 5. Push the prongs through the back of the fabric. Push fabric down on either side of the prongs using your pliers.

Step 6. Use your pliers to fold the stud prongs down and curl them into the fabric so they are secure.

Step 7. Repeat, and fill up your collar with studs!
