Get started by gathering these supplies:

  • Leg warmers
  • Extra-strength adhesive
  • Colorful gems
  • Bottle or other cylindrical item

This DIY is easily customizable, as you can choose the color of the leg warmers and gems to match the rest of your runDisney costume. However, if you wish to keep things in true Dopey fashion, Disney recommends using green leg warmers. We also think purple leg warmers would be great, too!

Once you have your supplies ready,  insert your bottle or similarly shaped item into the leg warmers so that the fabric is held in place and you can easily attach the gems.

Apply a bit of adhesive to the backs of the gems, and place the gems on the leg warmers in any pattern you choose.

Be sure to let the adhesive dry overnight so that your gems will stay in place throughout the duration of your run. Once the adhesive has dried, you are ready to run in true 90s fashion! Just slip the leg warmers on over your socks and running shoes.
