Don't toss those ripped-up stockings! Got a run? No problem! You can wear them as is and put some dabs of clear nailpolish on the ends of the runs like in my Shredded Tights Tutorial - or try this:
Lay tights flat on the floor,
then fold in half vertically, one leg on top of the other.
Starting at the toes...
roll both legs up towards the hips. Fold the hip area under (or cut it off).
Secure with a couple safety pins or handstitching, and voila!
Instant chiffon-y rose to pin on a lapel, belt, bag, or jacket pocket.
You can also pull each leg of the tights around your neck,
the rose up that way, and create a neck decoration.
