I found this picture online and figured I could easily recreate it.


I was just wondering what size studs you thought those were and about how many I'd need. I had bought some studs off ebay and it turns out they're way too small. The site studs and spikes has 1 inch one's but I don't know if they'd be too big. The 1 inch also comes in a set of 25 for $6 and I want to make this as inexpensively as possible so having to buy 3 bags would be alot considering I bought a pair of shorts for like $15 to do the project on.

Studs & Spikes is the best web vendor I've found so far for such goodies, though I've not bought from them yet.

I notice the studs are slightly wider than the belt loops, and I just measured the belt loops on the jeans I'm wearing and they're exactly 1/2 inch, so I would venture a guess that the studs are 1/2 inch or 5/8 inch. You don't say how wide the studs you got on eBay are, but they're probably four prong studs for a setting tool like a Bedazzler, and from what I remember, the most common size my parents bought me was 3/8 inch because they were the cheapest.

So yeah, my overall recommendation is to go with 1/2 inch dome studs, which you can get in a bag of 100 for $8. I'd also check local tattoo parlors, because they'll sometimes carry that sort of thing, as well as craft stores and dollar stores. You never know, you might find a local supplier for cheaper than online+shipping.

The one's I got were 1/4''  and they were two prong ones.

They were these ones: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260714910658&ssPageName=ADME:L:PMR:US:1123#ht_801wt_936

According to Studs and Spikes they are the smallest one's. 1/2 are the 4th smallest one. I thought at first I thought I'd have to get 1 inch, but they might be too big. 3/4 or 5/8 is probably what I would need. 5/8 is a little smaller than 3/4.
