Rit Dye Wooden Bead Necklace
Quickly create funky, colorful accessories to freshen up your spring wardrobe with some wooden beads and dye. By dyeing in a mason jar, you can save the dye bath to dye more items later as the dye will keep indefinitely in an airtight container.
- Time:1/2 hour
1Project time does not include drying time for the dye.
2Pour very hot water into a mason jar. Pour 1/4 bottle of Aquamarine into the mason jar. Stir. (Tip: adding a drop or two of dishwashing liquid to the dye bath helps to better distribute the dye).
3If desired, repeat with different dye colors. You will need a separate Mason Jar for each individual color of dye used.
4Place clean wooden beads, spools and/or wheels into dye bath (be sure the items being used do not have any coating or finish).
5Let beads sit in the dye bath for 20-30 minutes.
6Rinse thoroughly with water and dishwashing liquid. Let dry for approximately 1-1/2 hours.
7String the beads onto your cord in whatever order you want! Trim excess cord.
