Hello! My name is Laura Parke and I am thrilled to join the lovely company of the DFM contributor team. I am a graphic designer by day and a DIY/crafting junkie and blogger by night. In MakeKind, I will share my latest projects with you (I promise they’ll be easy peasy!). First up are some polka dot tights. Who doesn’t love a splash of polka dots to liven up an outfit?

Materials: tights, fabric paint and a 1/4″ dauber (or a round sponge brush).

Polka Dot Tights Supplies


Step 1: Conceal a piece of cardboard inside your tights to create a sturdy surface to paint with.

Step 2: Decide how far apart you want your polka dots to be, and begin making your pattern, starting at the toe and working up one leg of the tights.

Step 3: Lay both legs of the tights together, and begin painting the second leg, repeating the same pattern.

Step 4 (optional): I decided to add some neon polka dots to my tights, so I painted directly over a few white dots with the neon paint. This was to make sure I kept with the pattern I had already created.

There you have it! Your very own pair of polka dot tights.
