Folks, it has been a DIY inspired weekend. So get ready for a slew of handmade things to be rolling out on the blog in the coming days.
Without further adieu...... first up, the studded hair bow. Of course, it's a well known fact my feelings for studs and leather, so what better way to combine them into one amazingly bad-a accessory than this. Let's get to it!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED ::
Gold Studs $5.00 -> M&J Trim has the best selection of studs and spikes.
Leather bow $5.00 -> I snatched mine on super sale at the American Apparel pop-up shop.
Exacto knife $6.50 -> A leather punch would've also done the job, but the holes may be too big with a punch.
- Measure (cause I didn't!) and mark where you want the studs to go. Mine are wee-bit sporadically placed!
- Using the exacto knife, make small cuts in the bow where the spikes will go through. The spikes alone will not puncture the leather.
- Line up the stud with the holes you just made with the exacto. Push firmly until you see the spikes coming out the other side.
- Bend the spikes down to secure the stud in place. Repeat for as many studs as you'd like to be on your bow.
Add it to your favorite summer hair-do and you're ready to go!
