Dyed sisal rope and dollar tree votives

Hey there everyone!

Today I am sharing dyed sisal rope and dollar tree votives.

How to dye sisal rope and make cute dollar tree votives
The other day I popped in the dollar tree to see what was new.

I tend to get carried away this time of year with all their seasonal junk, I mean decor and goodies.

This project was so simple, I am just going to give you the verbal, and show you the visual:)

I had this sisal rope on hand, and of course Rit dye a plenty these days.

Sorry, but I have to use this stuff up, I have a ton of it.

I wrapped some sisal rope around the dollar tree votive candle.

Just half way as you can see and hot glued.

I simply painted on the rit dye color with a sponge brush.

I used scarlet red rit dye for one. And on the other one, I used Apple green and hint of evening blue rit dye.

Again, just dabbed it on with a sponge brush, straight up, no mixing with water.

    Debbie, Love your ideas. Just a question, did you ever try the new liquid glue stick????? Would like to try it on the rope on the votive holder.

    Hey Debbie! Love this idea! How do you sleep with all these creative ideas!! I tried the pumpkin on glass, it it didn’t work out so well. Didn’t look anything like yours. :( I was disappointed, but I am sure there are more great things I can make!
