DIY Studded Boots

As you may know I have been obsessed with these boots and been wanting them forever. But they are sold out in black and a little too pricey for me. So I decided, what the heck! I'll make my own since I usually recreate my own clothes & shoes anyways!

Okay so originally I wanted Silver Studs on my boots, but unfortunately this is all I have due to my D.I.Y jacket I did in the past.
So instead I used a Gold Studded belt I had bought from a Goodwill for my arts & crafts box a while back. I actually forgot I had this belt or I would have done this sooner! :(  Anyways,  You're going to need an old studded belt of your choice or just individual studs in general. 
Okay so I used a mini screwdriver to take out the studs from the belt, & I used a small sharp nail to make holes in my boots for the studs. U can use a hammer and piece of wood to pierce your boot, but in my case my boots are so old I was able to do it by hand.
I started out with the tongue of the shoe.

Here's the finished product! Do you love it? lol
Thanks for reading<3


  1. I absolutely love the boots!! I really want some like that!!
    I usually think that I can make much cheaper versions of expensive stuff i want but in this case - I think this is a bit too adventurous for me!! (plus I don't have any old boots)
    But urs look amazing - I am now very jealous! How about a pic of you wearing them??
