cut across the leg so that you get a band then stretch it so that curls up and wear it as a necklace

If you want to wear a wig next Hallowe'en (or before -- whatever) you cut part of one leg off, tie a knot in it and pull it down over your hair -- even if you have long, thick hair the wig will slide on -- no problem.  Wink

Another frugal thing to do with two pairs of identical (but torn) tights or nylons: cut the torn leg off each pair and wear both pairs together. You'll end up with two legs and two "panties", but who'll know?

I remember than in a fashion class that i had last year, we had to take a piece of cloth and turn it into something totally different and a girl got a net like pantyhose and she cut the feet part and in the butt area and suddenly she had a very sexy wearable sort of blouse, was amazingly easy

but as you have post this in january, probably you've done already something to them...

Jillian Jig's little pigs! We made those in first grade, and they are ADORABLE. At least I thought so 13 years ago. It would be cute to have a little harringbone pig

a girl in my sculpture class used nylons to make a blanket.  i think she cut up the legs into little loops and wove them on one of those potholder looms - or maybe she made her own loom with nails and wood frame?  then she tied them together with delicate leftover loops and bows.  anyway, the effect came out nice with different colored hose, and i'm sure it would be soft and warm.  she said that one pair of nylons could make two squares.  be forewarned, a hundred nylon squares linked together is very tiny!  so you'd have quite a project ahead if you wanted to make it people-sized.

I love making stocking people! My art teacher makes really cute ones... mine doesn't compare, but here it is, anyway:

All I did was take an old knee-high that didn't fit and cut the top off. I used cotton batting (you can use the insides of an old pillow, if you want, or even cotton balls) to stuff the toes and leg. I made it into a round shape, much like a potato.
Then I tied up the top. I sewed into it, making a round nose. Next, I drew on facial features using a sharpie. You can attach googley eyes, yarn for hair, or a button for the nose. Be creative! My art teacher has an Elvis one, a leprechan, a santa claus, etc. The list can go on and on.
You can even make really little ones and attach them to pin-backs and add cloth decorartions. My art teacher did this and they looked really cute!

I love crocheting with them. One of my favourite and most odd hats is made of old nylons. My friend has a sweater that looks like it is made of old nylons, and they really do make a fab yarn.
