DIY: Studded Clutch





So I have been on a kick with studding things I own, (but it's so much fun!). I had a purse I bought from Target on clearance and I wore it so much the strap broke. Instead of crying over spilt almond milk, I decided to revamp the purse and turn it into something fabulous and you can do it too!

Here is what you'll need:



 - 1 clutch bag or purse

 - Studded prong press
 - Awe (will be used to help make holes)
 - Studs (this will depend on how much you want to stud. I only did the top flap and used about 50 cone studs)




Step 1: Figure out where you want to place the stud. With the stud in hand, using force, push the stud through the fabric.




Step 2: You will now have holes where you placed your studs. If the prongs didn't go all the way through, using the Awe, poke through the marks so the hole continues to the other side. You will know that it was successful if you can push the prongs on the studs all the way through without a lot of effort.




Step 3: Using the prong press, push down the prongs on the studs to lock them in place. This will take a little muscle but it's totally worth the end result! Then repeat until you have the desired amount of studs and that's it!



This is the front view...



It's as simple as that! If you don't finish it all in one sitting...IT'S OKAY! This actually took me a couple of days to complete because I took breaks and such.

As always, enjoy!
