Diy Rit dye projects {thinking outside the box}

Hello there!

So let me tell you…….

When I had the opportunity to work with Rit dye  and try out their products, I jumped at it.

You know why?

Because I have never once tried Rit dye or done a Rit dye project in my life in my life.


Not sure, I think I was intimidated, dye, bleach, me, any liquid that can stain, usually don’t go together.

I am so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave it try.


So come along with me and let’s see how this all was done!

With so many colors to choose from, which one would I pick?

26 to be exact both in liquid and powder form. As you can see I was given the liquid form.

You see Sunshine Orange spoke to me,

happy, vibrant and perfect for Halloween.

I decided NOT to go the traditional way of dying fabric.  Nothing wrong with that, and I will give it try soon.

I just wanted to try something different.

I had picked up a few of these wood plaque boards at Hobby lobby some time ago.

They were only $2.00 or so a piece.

I certainly can come up with something.

OK, now what?
I painted the Rit dye straight up, no water added, nothing.

It painted on wood just beautiful.

I let it dry for around an hour or so.

Hello family plaque.

I had these cute felt owls from last year.

With Halloween right around the corner, this would be perfect.

Of course the Stick, and pine cone came from my own backyard.


I think this needs to go on the front door.


Now with some of the other wonderful Rit dye color choices, I must get busy.

    That is great! I didn’t even think about dying wood! As a child of the 60’s I have tie dyed many a t-shirt :-).

    Debbie, it is so pretty on your wreath! You know I love the stencil on it! I had a really bad incident many years ago with Rit Dye, so I have been scared to use it since. Glad to know it can be used in different ways, not just fabric. Great post!

    Fabulous! I haven’t used Rit Dye since the Tie-Dye Days, but you’re way too young to remember all that glorious stuff. I love how you create so many wonderful things without spending beaucoup bucks! Your projects are truly an inspiration to all, Happy Fall! Peggy
