DIY Embellished Collar

Sunday, July 22, 2012

I have been a little obsessed with these embellished collars lately. They are everywhere, and now there are necklaces made to look like collars! I decided that I needed to make my own, and I just happened to have the materials lying around ;) Check out some of my inspiration below...



I am drawn to the really flashy collars, but I don't know if they fit my personal style? I went for a more tamed down version, but I might make a more ballsy one soon :) I started off with a vintage button down tank I found at the thrift store.



I had these cute little gold pyramid studs sitting in my craft box, and I thought they would work perfectly



I then plotted out how I wanted to place the studs. I went with a minimalistic approach....



Then, I just started poking them through the material. The blouse is a really light weight fabric, so it was easy to push the studs right through.




Once I had all the little prongs through the fabric, I took my needle nose pliers and bent them inward. I could have used a butter knife too, they're very flexible



Voilá, first one done! Then I just repeated the steps until I had all the studs I wanted in place.


I ultimately chose to place 6 studs on each side. I felt like it was just enough extra flare without being over the top.





What do you think? Are you a fan of the embellished collar trend? Next time I want to go crazy, maybe add rhinestones and sequins!
