DIY Studded Shorts Supplies
step 1
Layout your shorts on a flat surface and decide where you want to place your studs.

I placed mine very random and spaced apart to look as if some were missing. I didnt want them to look too perfect.

Once you have your studs placed where you want them, I recommend using your phone to take a quick picture just in case you forget your placement.DIY Studded Shorts Layout

Using a pencil put a small dot on your shorts right where you want your stud to be.DIY Studded Shorts Marking Design

step 2
Take your stud and place it on top of the dot you made and push the prongs through the fabric.

Make sure you push them all the way through.DIY Studded Shorts Push Prongs All The Way Thru

Using your pliers bend all the prongs over and crimp them down to make a flat surface on the backside of your studs. You dont want to have any prongs sticking out to poke you or catch on anything.DIY Studded Shorts Folding Prongs

step 3
Continue placing all your studs on the front and back of your shorts, until youve placed them all where you want them.

I think these shorts are going to be my new go to pair for the rest of the summer. Adding just a few studs is such a simple solution and a great way to add a subtle embellishment to a basic pair of chino shorts. You can easily dress them up or down depending on your mood.

If you want a more relaxed casual look you could even distress them or fray the edges. Its really up to you.
