Using Nailheads on Denim
I love a great bargain and was very excited when I snagged this denim vest for less than $6 at Target. Although already decorated with lace inserts, I still wanted more bling. For this project you need:
6 - 34ss Fuchsia Rose Pins
6 - 8.5 mm silver star nailheads
8 - 8.54 mm silver pearl nailheads
Pair of scissors
Rose Pins feature a Swarovski Elements Rhinestone attached to a stainless steel nailhead back. They work great with thicker denim material.
I decided upon a simple straight line design and drew a chalk line as a guide to keep the embellishments on an even line. Then simply take a nailhead and press the prongs through the material so that the prongs are on the inside of your garment. Using the flat blade of a pair of scissors, bend the prongs towards the center of the nailhead.
Continue adding rose pins and nailheads until your design is completed. This is how my vest looks. How would you have embellished it? Drop me a line and tell me what you did.
