How to dye burlap with rit dye

Oh my,

How to dye burlap with rit dye!

I am going rit dye crazy now.

I bought these cute burlap roses at Hobby lobby the other day for a buck a piece.

I really didn’t want to keep them natural.

I am in NO short supply of rit dye and the color choices are magnificent.

Tangerine was my color of choice seeing Fall is coming.

I simply took a cup of water, heated in the microwave.

Took 1/2 cup of Rit dye and dumped it in  the hot water.

I did this in the sink as you can see.

Dipped my roses for about 10 seconds

placed  them on the paper towels to dry….

    Debbie just when I think you cannot do anything more clever you come up with something like these roses. They are adorable and I love the color. You are the queen of Ritz Dye lately. Love this idea. I saw those roses at Hobby Lobby and loved them in the burlap color too. Thanks for sharing.

    I love this!! It would look really awesome to dye some burlap for your burlap rag wreath tutorial (nice fall colors) or the kitchen wreath tutorial you recently had on your blog. Thank you “Rit Queen” for sharing this easy to follow tutorial.

      I thought about dying the burlap rag wreath, however it would be too hard to take it all apart and start over again. I will dye more burlap in the future for sure!
