    For the Aquamarine ribbon shown in the picture, mix 2 tablespoons Aquamarine dye with 1-1/2 cups hot water in a plastic or metal bowl and stir. Let steep for 20 minutes. For good hot water, heat some in the microwave in a glass bowl for 2 minutes. Place lace ribbon in the liquid dye solution, let set for 5-10 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove the dyed ribbon when desired color is achieved and place onto a foil pan. Let dry. Reserve your remaining mixture for future dyeing by pouring into an airtight glass jar or container, keep sealed.

    For the Amethyst Purple ribbon shown in the picture, pour 1/2 bottle of Amethyst Purple dye in a plastic or metal bowl and stir. Place lace ribbon in the liquid dye, let set for 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove the dyed ribbon when desired color is achieved and place onto a foil pan. Let dry. To save any leftover dye, pour the remaining mixture back into the Rit Dye container.
  • 5
    Measure 20 inches of the dyed lace and cut. Thread a tapestry needle with one end of the dyed lace.
  • 6
    Thread one to three beads onto the dyed lace. Tie a double knot at each bead end to secure in place.
  • 7
    Optional Variations: Paint various sections of the lace with different colors of dye for more boho whimsy, or thread more than three beads onto your bracelet, or layer a few ribbons through the beads.
