DIY Project = Ripped Tights

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

This is very easy to do. Remember how upset you used to get when your tights ripped? Now you can wear them instead of throwing them out. Follow the trends the girls from LA in The Cobra Snake are wearing.
Maybe it is too much for you, but I assure you that if you do it well, some runners on your stockings will look très bien.

You need:

-A pair of tights. It can be any colour, but it looks better on black. You can use an old pair with previous runners on it, but if you want to buy new tights for this experiment, you can go to H&M, there are good quality tights just for 3 $.

1. Put the tights on. It will be better as the holes/runners will be at the exact place you want them to be, plus, the ripping is easier as the tights are stretched.
2. Take a pin and pull out a thread. Then, with your hands, pull the thread until a runner appears.
3. Stretch the fabric to extend the runner.

If you want it to look like this:

Just pull more threads with the pin to create paralell runners. This is my favourite effect, it looks like you bought it like that. Don't make any holes, it won't look too grunge.

For a more exaggerated look :

When you pull the thread with the pin, start a runner and with your hands make holes along the runner.

Use thicker tights to get a similar effect.
