Good Afternoon! Happy Thrifty Thursday! With the upcoming holidays that require you to look super cute- we figured a fashion DIY would be very fitting! We absolutely love wearing LBD’s in the winter, but without tights your legs will freeze! To spice up any outfit we came up with our very own recipe for glitter tights that are very inexpensive!
For starters you’ll need:
- tights- preferably a color close to your skin tone
- photo mount form 3M (adhesive for the glitter)
- any glitter- we love gold, silver, or multi color!
- an old sheet of paper to spray the tights on
1). Lay the tights on the sheet of paper and spray on each leg (do above the knee first)
2). “quickly” pour the glitter on the area you sprayed
3). leave them to dry for just few seconds, then put slide the tights on your arm so the sides don’t stick together
4). spray glue below the knee
5). Pour glitter on the 2nd area you sprayed
6). Leave to dry for a few seconds, then slide tights on again to separate both sides so they don’t stick!
7) Repeat steps 1 through 6 on other leg
8). If you want more glitter, keep repeating steps 1-6 until desired amount of glitter is on your tights
9). Let your tights dry for at least an hour, we suggest overnight so they are completely dry!
10). ENJOY YOUR NEW TIGHTS YOU DIY’d!
See our photos below for the steps we took to make the tights!
