Western Tips — This might be our easiest DIY yet: You can get your own super-fancy, western-style shirt in just minutes (really!).


You’ll need:
  • A button down shirt with a collar. Feel free to ch0ose any color or pattern you’d like.
  • Metal collar tips,  available at trim stores and online
  • A hammer
Step 1 —
Place one of the metal collar tops on to the end of one of the fabric collar points.

Step 2 —
Turn the collar over, making sure the metal tip stays in place. Gently begin to hammer the metal tip, so the points on the back flatten against the collar and hold the fabric in place.


Step 3 —
This is what the metal collar tip should look like after it’s hammered on. You don’t need to worry about the material going all the way to the bottom of the “V” — you just want to make sure that the metal points are digging into the fabric enough so that the metal tip doesn’t fall off.


Step 4 —
Repeat steps 1-3 for the other collar piece and the other collar tip.  Feel free to wear your favorite leather boots with this shirt, but we’re going to suggest skipping the bolo tie (just saying’).
