Just found this at http://naughtysecretaryclub.blogspot.com

In case you have not heard, tights are all the rage. Embellished tights especially. I’m not sure I saw anyone ob the runway with ice cream cones on their calves, but today for I Love to Create this is the Naughty Secretary Club interepretation of the trend.



SUPPLIES

Paint Brush
Length of Calf Size Pipe
Fine Tip Permanent Marker
Tights
Embroidery Pattern or image from Coloring Book
Clear Tape


THE PERFECT ICE CREAM CONE

Choose the image you want on your tights. Make sure that it is not super detailed and will be easy to paint and trace. I found that embroidery patterns and coloring book pages work awesome.



PICK UP SOME PIPE

The hardware store is a wealth of crafty goodness. Hit the plumbing aisle for a length of tubing the size of your calf. Mailing tubes also work great.


TAPE IT DOWN

Using tape attach your embroidery pattern to your tubing. put on your tights and mark with a washable marker where you want the ice cream cone. Stretch your tights over the tubing lining up the design with the mark on your tights.


TRACE

Use a fine tip marker to trace the image onto your tights.

PAINT IT SCRUMPTIOUS

Using a paint brush and Tulip Soft Fabric Paint fill in the areas that you traced. A thin coat should work fine. Allow to dry completely.


GLITTERLISCIOUS

Using Tulip Glitter Bond and a fine tip paint brush apply little marks to the top of the ice cream cone the size of candy sprinkles. Generously apply glitter and allow to dry. Shake off excess.

Cute as can be and ready to wear. I might adorn myself a few more pairs of tights and leggins once the weather gets cooler.
