I ordered these spike studs a while ago from ebay, and decided to customise a plain black skinny belt with them today, check out the result below. I still have some left, which I think I will use to embellish the collar on a shirt.
- Be sure to measure out and mark on where you're going to put each stud, before you make any holes.
- Use sharp tools to ensure neatness (but be careful!)
- Start small - you can always make a hole bigger but if the hole is too big, it's very difficult to fix.
Hardly the most challenging of projects, but I think it's a simple way of making a basic item much more fun! However, I am not completely happy with the studs I bought, the screw is too long for the spike, so it sticks out of the bottom and doesn't look neat (see picture below). This isn't completely vital with something simple like a belt, but it could be very inconvenient in other projects. I bought them from the seller ethersell88, so if a similar issue would bother you, please be careful when buying your own spike studs.
