How to Make Studded Jeans with I Spy DIY

Hi everyone! It’s Jenni from I Spy DIY. I’m back with the fifth part of my series of DIY projects all around denim this Back to School season. This project is studded jeans which is one of the coolest trends for fall. Don’t just stop at jeans – you can stud shorts, canvas sneakers, denim jackets and more!

What you need:
Flatback studs in four sizes
Tape Measure
Paint brush


What to do:

Step One:  Measure and mark equal distances between where you would like each stud to be placed on your jeans.
Step Two:  Put glue on the back of each stud with the paint brush, then place on the jeans. Start with the largest gems and work down to the smallest.
Step Three:  Create pyramids down the seam of your jeans, decreasing the amount of gems as you reach the top.
Step Four:  Let dry. Hand wash. Done!
