MADE: DAMIEN HIRST


I have long been a fan of Damien Hirst. When I found these oversized brads in the scrapbook section.... I immediately thought of Hirsts famous dot paintings. 

Best part about this shirt? You'll be able to take out the brads and still wear the shirt. With just the eyelets or you could swap out the colors. 
1. Gather up supplies, I got everything at Michaels 
2. Mark where the brads will go. Mine are spaced one inch 
3. Poke a hole in the shirt 
4. Sandwich the eyelet together through the shirt. 
1. Hammer the eyelet together with the eyelet tool 
2. Do the same for all the marked spots 
3. Poke the brad through the eyelet and fold out the prongs 
4. Fill all the eyelets with random colors 

Few tips for this shirt:
Use and "no iron" or "wrinkle free" shirt, so you don't have to worry about ironing around all the eyelets.
Take out all the Brads and hand wash the shirt. 
The grommets are hammered on... but I wouldn't chance running it through the wash. 
I have not had an issue with the brads being uncomfortable, if you have a metal allergy i'd recommend an under shirt.
