DIY DYED DOLLAR ROSE PETALS FROM DOLLAR TREE

Here are the directions:


Buy 300 pack dollar rose petals from Dollar Tree or where ever you can find them


Here are the directions photo 332910-1


 


Fill a big pot with hot water and place on the stove


Here are the directions photo 332910-2


Then take Rit Dye(from most craft stores)....whatever color you want.if you want a custom color go on Rit's website and see how to mix two of their colors to make a special color like I did (Coral)


Here are the directions photo 332910-3


Put the dye in the warm/hot water(if you want put the burner on low for like 10 min into the process to make the dye dissolve the best...start pouring the petals in


Here are the directions photo 332910-4


I put about 1,500 in a pot this size..just keep mashing them down


Here are the directions photo 332910-5


Here are the directions photo 332910-6


Let them soak for a while and randomly stir and kinda flip petals up from the bottom so the top ones can get down a soak.


Here are the directions photo 332910-7


keep in mind they will be a bit darker when wet so make sure you obtain the color you want by taking something(like a color swatch) and put it next to it to see if you have gotten the right shade yet.


When you have take the pot of petals and pour water out into a strainer or direction in a side of the sink.  Eventually let all the petals go in the sink so you can squeeze the excess water out...run them under warm water and eventually cold.  Get all the excess water and dye out until they run clear


Here are the directions photo 332910-8

They look great.  I would never have thought of that.  I spent so much money on rose petals!

I so agree.  AZ has them in Phoenix.  If I had known that I would have gone shopping when I visited my parents.

That's what I have seemed to notice.  They have items that you gals have raved about that don't exist in Michaels.  How have they not come to CA?
