DIY Studded Sneakers

let’s get studding! And don’t forget to enter our giveaway, after the jump, for a chance to win a pair of our favorite kicks . . .

all those you need is-

• a pair of sneakers

• 150 – 200 brass cone spikes

• adhesive

• a disposable container or popsicle stick

• toothpicks




Start by squeezing a small amount of  adhesive into a disposable container or onto a wooden popsicle stick. Dispensing a small amount at a time prevents the glue from drying too quickly. Using the tip of a toothpick, apply a small dollop of glue onto the back of a spike.

Press the spike into the sneaker, holding it in place for a few seconds.

Continue adding spikes along the shoe’s baseline and working upwards in horizontal lines.

Arrange the spikes, without glue, into awkward spaces before attaching them.

Glue spikes onto the heel cap, again working horizontally.

Allow the shoes to dry overnight before wearing them!
