31 Days of DIY Denim: Day 23, Pom-Pom Applique

Check out today’s project

by daniel huskey

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

Pom-pom strip


Hot glue gun


Step 1: Locate the outer vertical side seam on one pant leg and line up your pom-pom strip along its entirety. Cut off any excess pom-poms.

Step 2: Take your hot glue gun and dab a little glue at the top of the seam. Secure the tip of your pom-pom strip to this point.

Step 3: Release glue along the pant seam and apply the pom-pom strip in suit. Take your time with this to ensure that your pom-pom strip is glued on straight.

Step 4: Once you're finished with one pant leg, repeat step one to three on the other, and voilà! The dance floor won't be ready for you.
