you can buy a leather punch on amazon, they’re pretty cheap, and punch holes into whatever you’ve got and pop spikes or whatever in…
sometimes you can find the kind of pyramid studs and things that you can just sew on…or do what yanie said and get super-gluin lol
http://studsandspikes.com/buy/studs-c-57.html You can sometimes get a pack of 100 studs for only $4-$6.

You’ll need pliers, a good tool for punching holes (the first guy uses a dart, lol) and patience.posted over 6 years ago
i’ve been looking for a post to reply like this lol.
I, too, love studs. if i could, i would wear studs everyday. I just love that rocker-esque tough vibe you get from them.. What I do, is go to Wal-Mart and in the crafts section they will sell a sheet with about 50+ studs. They are “Iron-On”. They cost about 3 dollars and its pretty easy to put them on your stuff. You basically cut them, Place the sticky side of the sheet with the stud on the item, Iron it, wait for it to cool off, and Voila!! easy studding without a bedazzler.
I love the easiness of these iron on studs, but honestly, you have to be very careful when using them. Some may come off with regular wear, but if you put them properly and iron them well and let them cool off, they will stick.
Today, actually, I just completed a studded sweater for myself. I am in love with the big shoulder detail trend going on in womens fashion right now, so i decided to stud out the shoulders of a simple black sweatshirt. It came out looking lovely!!! so chic and it looks so expensive. I can’t wait to wear it.
Hopefully this helps you out a lot. Its a quick and inexpensive alternative to a bedazzler.
…. I’m heading to walmart tomorrow! lol
I may be getting a tad “stud happy” going through my closet tomorrow lol :)posted over 6 years ago
I do studs freehand really. I get a cheapo studded belt, use something with a flat edge (or my own fingers) to pop out the studs, then stick them into whatever I want.
I did a pretty decent stud job on this adorable black purse I have, but free hand studs through (I think faux) leather hurts like a mofo XDposted about 6 years ago
