In Minnesota gloves and mittens are a necessary part of your wardrobe for at least half of the year. You can update the look of any pair of gloves with just a pack of nailhead studs and a screwdriver.
This past Christmas my mom gave me enough pairs of gloves to be able to wear a pair for each day of the week. No really, I have an option to match any outfit. In that gift of gloves were a pair of classic Isotoner gloves.
The gloves fit great and have touchscreen ability but I felt they needed a little extra flair. In my “studs-and-duds drawer” I had these brass nailheads that compliment the navy gloves perfectly.

Make Your Own Studded Gloves Refashion
Decide on a pattern for the studs. I decided to follow the iconic chevron of my Isotoners.
Place a small piece of cardboard inside the gloves and push the prongs of the stud through the fabric. The stud prongs will push right into the cardboard making it easier to get the placement right.
Hold the stud in place and turn the glove inside out. Use a small flathead screwdriver to push the prongs down. Repeat until you’re satisfied with your new stud pattern.
I really like the way this simple glove upgrade turned out. This is one of the easier refashion projects to make and such a great way to customize cold weather accessories.
This isn’t my first winter gear refashion. A few years ago I refashioned a pair of leather mittens.
