DIY Studded Heart Sweatshirt

As you can tell from our Conversation Heart Coasters, we definitely have Valentine’s Day on our minds. Today, we have our hearts set on this DIY Studded Heart Sweatshirt that Stephanie from Henry Happened made. The surprise about this little number is that those studs are all iron-on! Which means you can have your Valentine’s Day outfit ready to go in one naptime.

Stephanie has been creating all types of Valentine’s Day projects like this ‘Lips’ Lip Gloss Holder and Mint Chocolate Lip Gloss + Sugar Lip Scrub. The Hex Nut Honeycomb Bracelet would make a great Valentine’s Day gift for a friend (or yourself).

Let’s get ready for Valentine’s Day with this DIY Studded Heart Sweatshirt…

DIY Studded Heart Sweatshirt

I did warn you that I’m already in the Valentine’s Day spirit! And this year I have hearts on the brain. Pretty much everything I’ve made lately is made of hearts – with a fair amount of sequins, glitter and pink thrown in. And studs. Because hearts and studs totally go together, right?

These iron on studs are awesome! I’ve seen them at both Michaels and JoAnns in the “bedazzle it” section. Yes, I’m pretty sure that is the technical name. You’ll need at least 3 packages. Combine these with a super cheap $5 Wal-Mart men’s sweatshirt.

Start by cutting the studs into strips. Peel off the black backing and arrange them on the sweatshirt.

Getting the shape right was the biggest challenge. It took more time than I’d like to admit to figure it out – so definitely save yourself the hassle and follow this pattern. 🙂

Then turn the sweatshirt over, being careful to keep the design in place, and iron according to the package directions.

After the studs have cooled peel off the plastic from the front.

The men’s sweatshirts are super soft and cozy. And if you cut off the collar and sleeves (see first photo) you get a cool Flashdance vibe. Because didn’t we all want to be Jennifer Beals? I used to spend Saturday nights as a kid dancing on the coffee table to that music!




I love the idea. Have you tried to wash your sweatshirt? I want to do the same thing but I am scared the studs will come off as soon as I wash the shirt. Please reply 🙂
