Dyeing flowers when all of the craft stores are closed when you don't have pink flowers...now that's creative, lol! It's also called desperate!
I recently painted one of our guest bedrooms a pale green. I didn't have enough touches of pink and wanted more, so this is what I did on a Thursday evening.
I had some cheap white silk roses, way more than I wanted, really. So I took my Rit dye and dipped them into a bowl of the mixture. Simply hot water and Rit dye. Then I let them dry upside down with a fan blowing on them while on an old towel.
They turned out the prettiest shade of pink!
I already had the Peony. The roses match it perfectly!
I love how they look up against the pale green walls.
A cheap and inexpensive way to add color is through flowers.
I used a paint brush dipped into the dye for the flowers on this wreath. They were white paper roses that had seen better days. Instead of throwing it out, I decided to try the dye on them. My youngest daughter was with me while doing all of this and she fell in love with how this wreath turned out. I have to say I agree!
Now my heart feels at ease with the fresh touches of pink. I hope this may give some of you all ideas on how to change things up a bit without breaking the bank.
And I hope all of you are doing ok with this quarantine junk. I'm naturally a homebody, so I'm doing great.
Have a blessed weekend!
