Shopping for new clothes can get pretty expensive. Whether your old clothes are looking a little worse for the wear or you want to update your style, revamping your wardrobe can cost a pretty penny.

That’s where fashion-forward DIYs like this one come in!

Do you have an old pair of leggings that you’re not loving anymore? If so, then you also have a brand new top sitting right under your nose! That’s right, you can transform leggings into an entirely new piece of clothing with just a simple snip.

Here’s how it’s done:



Step 1: Lay out your leggings and fold them in half “hot dog style”; the legs should be on top of each other.

Step 2: Grip your tights where the legs meet and make a simple cut in the shape of a semi-circle.

Step 3: Optional — cut the sleeves (a.k.a. the legs) of your leggings to transform them into a t-shirt. Enjoy your brand new top!
