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:
Pair of jeans

Step 1: Cut hems from the ankles of the jeans.

Step 2: Starting at one of the jean ankles, make a vertical cut to the desired length of fringe.

Step 3: Make another vertical cut, approximately 1/3 inch away from the first cut, and stop at the same spot.

Step 4: Continue doing this all the way around both jean ankles until you achieve the full-on fringe look.
