TIY: Studded Converse Sneakers

Here's another fun studding project! I have always wanted to stud a pair of sneakers, and I thought my Converse kicks were a good choice. It's fairly easy, all you need is a pair of shoes, some studs and some nose pliers (I ordered my studs from studsandspikes.com).

- First, find a layout of how you would like to place your studs on the shoe. I went around all the hard places where I wouldn't be able to puncture a stud through. 
- Next, you simply poke the studs through the fabric till they appear on the inside of the shoe.
- With the pliers, bend the points toward each other to create a flat surface. 
You can really do this with any size studs or spikes. Try it yourself and have fun!
