DIY: "Nailhead" Studded Bag


I started this DIY not really knowing how it was going to end up. All I knew is that I wanted to update my old bag by using the color of the season, Oxblood. Once I finished painting I knew my work was not done. I thought studs would look great, but was really not in the mood to go through the whole process (as seen here). These brass plated fasteners were the next best thing. Check out the process below:
 {I used acrylic paint and a paintbrush}
{first coat.  I used three.  be sure you allow to dry in between} 
{brass plated fasteners can be found at any office supply store}
 {use pliers to clip off the ends as close to the base as possible}
{use super glue to adhere the "nailhead" to the bag}
 {press down for a few seconds to make sure it sticks}

{end result}
