NYLON staffers created unique, DIY projects using denim in honor of our annual Denim Issue. Check back here every day of August to see a new project.

What you’ll need:
Old shoelaces
Denim fabric
Hot glue

Step 1: Tape your old shoelaces to the denim to use to measure length and width.

Step 2: Cut two pieces of denim that match the size of your laces.

Step 3: Twist the ends to make a point and use the hot glue gun to ensure the point stays.

Step 4: Using the pointy ends, lace up your sneakers.
