Here's another fun idea! Use metal thumbtacks to make studs! Just mark where you want the "studs" to be, insert the thumbtack (Flat side on the right side and the pin on the wrong side). Use a hammer to flatten the pin (And to keep it from sticking you!). For a more interesting look, use colored thumbtacks, or cover them in fabric. (Click here). How about using those fabric covered thumbtacks as earrings? Have fun with it!
