Introduction: Kool Aid Dyeing for Lace
I kept looking for a tutorial for kool aid lace dyeing,but I couldn't find any, so I decided to make my own.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Cut Your Lace
Cut you lace to the desired length you want,unless you want it all the same color. I am going to make a baby headband with my lace so I cut mine to 14 inches.
Step 2: Choose Your Kool Aid
For this piece of lace I chose grape and blue raspberry. (the blue is very pretty by itself too, as you can see in the first picture)
Step 3: Soak Your Lace
I use hot water, but room temperature water should be fine too. Mix in just a little bit of your kool aid (unless you are dyeing more than just a few inches). Then put your lace in. I always hold down the lace with fork so it stays completely submerged.
Step 4: Remove Your Lace
Once the lace is the color that you want, remove it from the kool aid water and rinse in clean warm water. Once rinsed lay out on a paper towel to dry.
Step 5: Finish
Now you have lace that not only is pretty, but smells like your favorite kool aid. :P
