Recycled Pantyhose

There are hundreds of things you can do with your old pantyhose, and plenty of books, and “How To” guides to help.

Here are a few ideas I’ve found to help give you some ideas for things you can do with your old pantyhose, and anything else you might have sitting around your house.

1. A wreath for the holidays.

Cut a leg off of a pair of old pantyhose stuff it with, tie it in a loop, then decorate for any holiday or occasion!

2. Pantyhose sculptures

Use some of those old wire hangers we all hate, and bend to any shape. Then cover with an old pair of pantyhose.

Then paint your newly shaped sculpture and let dry.

Hang onions or other house hold /kitchen products to keep fresh, dry, or to save space until needed.

Also use in the garden to help give your plants and vegetables added protection against insects and other animals. The soft stretchy material will allow your garden to breath and grow as it needs to, while still allowing in the sunlight!

Speaking of letting in the light… check out this Cool window decor above. Made with pantyhose that has been died different colors to match the rest of the interior.

Soap on a rope is a thing of the past… instead try soap in a stocking. This easy to do project is pretty self explanatory… cut the leg off and old pair of pantyhose and drop in a par of soap. I find this works best when you use the old peace of soap after it’s worn down from use, easily breaks onto peaces… collect those old peaces of soap in your pantyhose, and non of it will be waisted… a great way to be sure you get all your moneys worth! Best of all the pantyhose material acts as a washcloth so there’s no need for any additional luffas or washcloth to clutter your shower / tub!

Placing hosiery around the hose of your vacuum cleaner to prevent large objects such as screws, from getting sucked up and damaging the inside of your vacuum… also great if you are trying to retrieve something in those hard to reach places, like behind the couch, or down the sink.

You can also place an old pair of tights around a old shoe box to create a organizer for your home or office as seen in the example above.


As you can see there are plenty of things you can do with your old pantyhose, tights, leggings, stockings, etc… So please, don’t throw them away!
