31 Days of DIY Denim: Day 31, Pin Button

Check out today’s project

by lisa mischianti

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:

Pins of your choice

Wire cutter

Crazy glue/hot glue gun

Denim jacket


Step 1: Choose some pins that you like. If you want them to go through the buttonholes, make sure you measure the size.

Step 2: Remove the backs of the pins. Some have a wire that is easy to pull out, but others might require wire cutters to get off.

Step 3: Glue the pins onto the buttons.
