How to : Studded Shoes

Shoes- Colaba(Rs.150), Studs- Something Special, Glue gun- Any stationery shop

I have been seeing studded shoes, clothes and bags in almost every store and on every website since over a month now. And though I like the trend, I wasn't sold out by any particular piece. So I decided to try my hands on making something similar which  would be easy on my pocket and would satiate my need of having something studded! I studded a pair of black shoes, you could use the same technique and stud an old bag or even the pocket or collar of an old t-shirt or blouse. 

What you need :-
- Flat studs
- Glue gun/ Adhesive
- A pen
- A pair of old or new shoes

1) Take a pen and mark the places on the shoes where you would like to place your studs. This will make it easier when you start placing the studs.

2) Now take your glue gun and apply some of that glue to the marked spots and simultaneously place the studs before the glue dries.

3) Check if you want to add some more studs here and there to make it look better.

4)Let the glue dry for an hour or so before you flaunt them. And there, you have your own pair of studded shoes.

A tip- Don't worry about the studs being symmetrical unless you have a particular pattern in mind. 

Hope this gave you some fun ideas! Also, don't forget to enter the Styledrive for Spring Break Giveaway which ends tomorrow!
