If you have girls, you undoubtedly have a drawer full of tights that have runs, lost their elastic, or no longer fit. Don't despair! Use those old tights and some fiberfill to create a fun, soft ball!

Materials:

  • 4 pairs of tights, each a different color
  • Polyester fiberfill

Tools:

  • Scissors

Steps:

1. Determine which stocking will be the base of your ball. This will be stocking #1.

2. Cut off part of stocking #1 below the knee

3. Insert the fiberfill through the opening until a very firm ball has been formed.

4. Cut off the leftover piece of stocking to make a round ball.

5. Cut off part of stockings 2 through 4 below the knee

6. Pinch different parts of these tights and cut them to make holes.

7. Insert the ball into stocking #2 and cut off any excess

8. Follow the same procedure from STEP 7 with stocking #3 and stocking #4

Bonus: Since you only used one foot from each pair of tights, you can make another ball. You can either follow the same pattern to make a matching ball, or start with a different color to make a coordinated ball.

Additional Ideas: If you make all the holes the same size and use only black and white stockings, the ball will look like a soccer ball. Footie Ball Made From Tights
