Pantyhose Crafts Ideas

Save

Pantyhose and tights aren't wearable when they are snagged or torn, but there's no need to throw them into the trash. Combine pantyhose with a few supplies from the arts and crafts store and a bit of ingenuity to make creative projects.

Stocking Snakes

  • Cut the legs from a pair of pantyhose. Stuff them with cotton rags, tissue paper or pillow stuffing. Tie a knot in the open end and paint it red--this is the tongue of the stocking snake. Paint the stuffed body of the snake with acrylic paints and allow it to dry. Glue two plastic googly eyes, or make eyes from felt and glue them near the tied end--this is the head of the snake.

Scented Sachets

  • Fill the foot of an old pair of pantyhose with dried lavender. Snip it, tie the cut end into a knot, secure it with a pretty ribbon, and hang the scented sachet in your linen or clothes closet.

Trellis Ties

  • Cut strips from an old pair of pantyhose and store them on the potting bench. Use them to tie tomato plants or bean vines to their trellises. You can also use these ties to keep electrical cords together or when tie-dying fabric.

Sculpture Armature

  • Cut the legs from a pair of pantyhose and fill them with crumpled newspaper. Twist and tie the pantyhose into your desired shape. This is an armature or skeleton for a three-dimensional sculpture. Cover the pantyhose form with papier mache, plaster-infused wrap or modeling clay.

Stocking Stuffing

  • Cut pantyhose into pieces and stuff them into a pillow form. Make a tiny pillow form stuffed with pantyhose and use it as a pin cushion.
