Step 1 - Start wrapping the duck tape around the jeans. You want it snug but not to tight because you will need a little space for the scissors when cutting them off of you.
Now for cutting, start around the top of your thigh and cut a complete circle. (a new set of cut off's..lol) Your next cut will be on the inner part of your leg make a cut from top to bottom. Take your time not to nick your leg with the scissors.
Step 2 - Repeat on opposite leg.
TIP: Wrap one leg at a time and then cut off.
I wrapped both legs at the same time, was stiff legged and by the time I cut one side off the other side was tight and losing circulation.
Step 3 - Duck tape up the seam on each leg and place the stockings over each one.
Place a piece of wood for the stake into each leg and stuff with plastic grocery bags or whatever you have on hand. Add extra stuffing in the stocking past the end of the leg where the foot would be. This will help to keep the shoe on.
When finished I duck taped the end of the stocking to the piece of wood.
Step 4 - Add Shoes
You can get crafty and make a buckle etc. I used foam craft sheets (from local craft store) which had an adhesive backing to make the flap and the red buckle.
