DIY Punk Leather Jacket

Leather jackets can be expensive ,so it's best to use an older jacket that

you picked up at a used clothing store or may have had for a long time and

want to spruce it up a bit. You probably wouldn't want to spend a lot of money on a DIY activity.

But even if you could afford it, would you really want to

spend it on a new jacket?

Probably not.

Any one desires to look sharp , and you will be noticeably different in a crowd

if you are sporting around in a punk rock leather jacket.

Now, there isn't any particular arrangement to constructing a punk rock

leather jacket.

It's an amazing DIY activity, thus the design is going to be

entirely up to you.You can cover the entire jacket with studs and spikes,

and make panther striped sleeves. You could paint rock band logos everywhere on

it, or let it be any color you want that appeals to you.

Below are helpful pointers that can assist you.

You Can Use Studs And Spikes

Pick a unique design for your jacket, including where you want to place

the studs and spikes.

Draw the design you want on your jacket with chalk.

Force the prongs of every stud securely onto the jacket to make an exact

impression for your punch tool to pierce,

twisting the punch tool to bore holes for your prongs to go into.

Force the prongs through the holes and smoothen out the opposite side to

to keep in place.


Use paint pens or craft acrylics paint,craft acrylics paint adheres very well to leather, and

paint pens do the same.

Your creativity is the only restricting factor here. Make an outline of your concept

and then paint it!


> Use badges, fabric , Amazing E-6000 adhesive which is considered one of the best for working

with leather and cloth materials, and strong thread.You can also use floss that works well.

You will also need a good quality thimble, and a screwdriver for

for tightening your spikes.

> Stitching leather is extremely hard. It's not as difficult if you use a

quality sewing machine and specially designed needles for stitching leather,

however if you are DIY you'll need to punch a hole for each stitch with

a sharp pointed punching tool to refrain from breaking the needles and

cursing out loud when you stick yourself with the needle. Another suggestion is

to use the quality thimble to force your needle through the leather.

> Stitch far- out looking badges and weird pieces of of old clothing you

think would look crazy. These embellishments really stand out and

you can use Amazing E-6000 adhesive to keep the fabric or badge in place.

This stops the fabric from piping out when your wearing it

and also makes it look pretty much masterfully done from a ways off.


> Use Buttons or any thing else you think would be impressive looking if you put it on the jacket.

aestheticize your jacket with anything that captures your creativity. Jackets look slick with

additional ornaments.

You might want to sup it up more. Just kind of spruce it up a bit. Put some buttons you acquired

at a concert on it, or you might use Amazing E-6000 adhesive to attach bottle caps from your

favorite drink on it. There are many things that you can use.

Additional Ideas

You might want to add a key chain onto your jacket this really looks slick. This is an easy task

you just place the chain where you want it and sew it on.You might even want to attach

safety pins of varying sizes to the zipper, the cuffs, and the collar of the jacket.

You need to purchase a needle specially designed for stitching leather. Their different than

normal needles, they have a cutting point, so it will be a lot easier to

penetrate the leather. They are not cheap,but they are necessary.

Things You'll Need

A leather jacket(preferably a used one)

Spikes and Studs

craft acrylics paint (or paint pens)

Any sharp pointed tool


Amazing E-6000 (considered the best adhesive)



Thread and Needle

key chain
