L’eggs eggs, remember these?

 

Remember when L’eggs pantyhose came in an egg? In the early 90’s they stopped using the plastic eggs and put them in a box instead.

From: HanesBrands Inc. has ceased packaging the hosiery in the hard plastic shells. Notwithstanding the secondary uses for the eggs by crafters, artists, and hobbyists, the two-part plastic egg containers were seen as an example of wastefulness.

That is just a shame! We are not wasteful! Think of all the ways bloggers and crafters could use them. Burlap wrapped, silver leafed, decoupaged, blackboard paint……..

 

 

 

Legg’s were the only pantyhose I ever wore, back in the day when I wore pantyhose.

 

So I got a little nostalgic when I found a bag of Legg’s eggs at the thrift store. They reminded me of my younger days!

With a little white glue and yarn they become colorful Easter eggs. Just brush on the glue and start wrapping the yarn around and around.4 I found it easier to start at the tips and end in the middle, wrapping each end separately so I could still open the eggs.

  1. Wow, what a find, Debbie! A real blast from the past these are. Love the way you decorated them!

  2. I remember them well. When I wore pantyhose every day, I wore these so I had lots and lots of plastic eggs. We weren't wasteful either. I still have some Christmas ornaments made with them. They were beautiful as are your wonderful Easter eggs.

  3. I remember those!!! I had some in my dresser until we moved, LOL! Love the crafy ideas too 🙂
