I was given a pair of Clark Desert Boots without laces; I was being lazy so I just wore them.
Until one day I was chasing down a MUNI and I thought, "Hmm I really need laces."
Fast forward - I had extra wire from powder coating so I just started using them as laces.
Then I thought, why not make them into a design - and now here we are.
Needle nose pliers
Ideas to design with wire
Step 1: Prep
Get your materials and tools together
Step 2: Design
Create the design you want on one side.
I went with a Bird and a Rose; make whatever you want - go CRAZYyyy!!
Then string it through the desired eyelet
Step 3: Make Another on the Opposite Side
Close the loop
I just went with a swirl - easy and effective.
Step 4: "Tie" Your Laces!
Do a lil' twist ;)
