DIY Studded Doggie Collar

Make a dog collarStudded doggie collarMy dog, Love Love, has gotten to be my little dog model twice this past week! First we made him a little food and water bowl, and now: a studded doggie collar. I am in love with studs! So I decided spruce up a plain dog collar, adding a little toughness. Because nothing says tough like a pug.Cute dog collarHere's how to make your own:Dog collar diy1. Supplies needed: plain dog collar, exacto knife, pliers and studs. 2. Use the exacto knife to cut holes for the studs prongs to go into. 3. Insert the stud. 4. Use the pliers to bend the prongs in to secure the stud in place. Repeat for all the studs. Here's another project where we added stud's to denim.Diy dog collarMy dog is awesomeHave fun making your own doggie collar! xo. Emma

  • Ahh! Your pug is so cute! My family has three pugs back home and I miss them! It made me smile to see your adorable little pup. 🙂

  • This is awesome! I totally want a pug now too… so cute! xx

  • Toni –
    We purchased ours online. There are various shops you can find them. The name of these particular studs is Standard English77 Gold Studs. Happy crafting!


  • That last picture is so amazing! He looks very handsome indeed.


  • So, so cute!


  • really cute…just a thought or suggestion maybe after inserting the pronged studs..line the back of the collar with a soft fabric,just thinking those little prongs could be bothersome to your dog or potentially cut his little neck.


  • Aww, if I had a little doggie he would get one of these! 🙂

  • Cool! Unfortunastly you´re not going to see the studds under the long coat of my Cocker Spaniel 😉

  • Awww he looks so handsome in his new collar. Such a lovely gentleman. But a toughy ofcourse.

  • This is absolutely adorable! It looks particularly endearing on your oh-so-intimidating pug! I don’t have a pup but would love to make this more my friends. (Uhm, my friends dogs that is)!
    Hope you are having a wonderful day, thanks for sharing!

  • I know you get a lot of comments but can you PLEASE tell us where you got your studs from???? I haven’t been able to find good ones anywhere, Micheals, Joannes, boutique fabric stores. Any insight would help! The lady at Joanne’s told me it’s a trademarking issue…

  • Looks great! Just a thought though – Although a little more expensive the screw on ones are probably safer for your pup! I don’t know about you but after some wear I’ve had some of the prongs on studs start to stick out a little which could be uncomfortable.
    Another option would be to use studs like this but to hot glue gun a piece of ribbon along the back of the collar to cover the prongs.

  • I want a pug so badly. Yours is adorable and I especially love the bath time photos.

  • I can’t wait to have a doggie so I can make this awesome DIY! Where did you get the studs by the way? I’ve been looking for afordable ones (instore and online).


  • Love this idea! And your dog is sooo adorable. I love pugs and I wish I had one <3

  • Fun and easy DIY! I would cover the inside with another strip of fabric though, because the metal prongs might cause friction. Simply machine stitch down the length of the collar 🙂

  • Adorable! Wish I had a dog so I could do this x

  • Super cute. This also looks super easy!

  • awwww soo adorable! Love it! Your doggie is super cute!!

  • OOOH- that little FACE! I love sassy, expressive dogs! This is a great project, gals- loving the dog DIY stuff!

  • Adorable… pugs/bulldogs/boxers/boston terriers… they all look super cute with spike collars. Fits their spunky personalities 🙂


  • how adorable! The only downside to this DIY is that your dog may end up looking better than its owner!

  • ha! i love it! one of these days my future dog, Biz Markie (yes i already named him), will have a studded collar. 😉

  • I think I know a miniature pinscher who’d look smashing with a spiked collar!

  • OH! How adorable!!!! I want to spraypaint the studs and then add them!!

  • This is a great idea. I always wanted to put on on my pomchi bit I didn’t want to buy a leather one.

  • this is so adorable! I’d make one for myself 🙂

    p.s. I’m having a $75 Shabby Apple giveaway if you want to join!
