Make Your Own Gold-Tipped Collars A La Balenciaga

Forget craft stores—every good DIYer knows that hardware stores are where the gold is found. From springs that turn into a pair of knock-out earrings to bolts that weave into a statement necklace, home improvement odds and ends have somehow found their way out of our toolboxes and into our closets. Take, for instance, this modern take on the metal-tipped Western shirt from Balenciaga that can be whipped up at home with brass decorative corners, pin backs, and some simple tools for smashing. Honestly WTF provides a step-by-step towards making it happen to your own blah shirts—just be careful with that hammer. Blue-and-black thumb tips don't necessarily go with golden collar tips. (Honestly WTF)
