DIY Spikes & Pearls Collar
Here’s a DIY to give a plain collar shirt a fresh look. I’m using gold & silver spikes + pearls to give it a cool contrast between edgy and feminine.
If you choose to sew be sure to get the spikes and pearls with holes in them. I found these sew-on spikes on Amazon.com and you can easily pick up a string of pearls from a local thrift shop.
I am choosing to hand sew the spikes and pearls so that in the future I can remove them if I want to. Alternatively you could glue them on using the e6000 adhesive or get the iron-on studs. If you decide to glue or iron it will go much faster, but once you do they are on forever!
I start by sewing on the all of the spikes – alternating gold and silver.
Go through at least twice to secure them well – finish by knotting the thread on the underside of your collar.
Here it is with just the spikes…
Then add the pearls! Sewing them on the same way…
