DIY Studded and Spiked Shorts
- cut off shorts
- spikes and studs of your choosing – try crustpunks.com or studsandspikes.com
- a dart awl or sharp instrument
- flat head screwdriver
- phillips head screw driver if needed for the screw back spikes
- plan your layout with your studs and spikes
- for the screw back spikes: poke a hole with your dart awl, insert the screw back through the hole from the underside of the garment. screw the spike onto the screw back and tighten with the screwdriver.
- for the prong studs: poke the prongs through the fabric and use your flat head screwdriver to flatten the prongs down snug against the fabric.
