reusing panty hose

To prevent leftover wrapping paper from unrolling and tearing in storage, cut the legs off old pairs of panty hose and then store the tubes inside.
The stretchy nylong keeps paper tightly rolled, plus the translucent fabric keeps everything in view for trying to find the wrapping paper you want to use.
I've been doing this for a couple of years.

I haven't tried this idea yet, but you could probably reuse old nylons to stretch over wire to create butterflies or flowers.

Strips of nylon work to tie up tomatoes or vines in the garden.

Super-fab ideas ladies!

I have (in the past) used strips of pantyhose as tomato plant supports.
