{DIY} Heavy Metal

Like everyone else and their brother, I have fallen hard for grommets. Grommets on bags, grommets on jackets, you name it–give me ALL THE GROMMETS.

My obsession reached its zenith in Paris when I saw (yet another) striped shirt, this one punched with grommets.


However, room in my suitcase was nearing an end (as was my shopping budget), so I decided to try my hand at recreating the look on a shirt I already owned.

I think it turned out pretty well!

DO try this at home, folks! All you’ll need is a grommet puncher (found at your local craft store) and the corresponding size grommets (I used 3/4″). Then punch away!

What do you think about my creation? Would you try this on something you own?
