3  DIY Dyed Bottle Brush Trees in Winter Holidays by lindyv321 on: November 11, 2014 11:13:16 AM
I needed some bottle brush trees in fun colors for some upcoming projects I will be working on.  I did some searching online for colored trees and stumbled upon a post (sorry not sure from where now) saying I can dye my own trees.  So I bought some white trees and some dye and did it!

You will need white bottle brush trees, fabric dye, a plastic cup, and a plate for drying.

I used Rit dye for my trees.  This teal is in liquid form which I really liked and the pink was the powder most people are used to.

Fill your plastic cup up with water and add some dye.  You don't need much of either the liquid or the powder since you are using such a small amount of water.

Dip your tree in. These trees soak up the dye very quickly so only dip it for a few seconds then pull it out to check on the color.  If you want it darker then continue to dip for a few seconds then checking.

Put your trees on a paper plate and let them dry.

Have fun using them in your wintry crafts!

Love the cowl and the wreath!  I need a fall/Thanksgiving wreath too!

I am making some Christmas altered art and needed some retro looking bottle brush trees.  I bought plain white trees and dyed them myself.

I am also making 3 day counter pickles.  Not sure how they will turn out so I am just doing one jar for now.

Love the ray guns!  So cute!

The Candelabra is very spooky.  I love that you and coocoosnest both made one, great minds...

All the crochet goodies look lovely.

I worked on finishing up my 12 Days of Christmas goodies over the weekend and snuck in some time to make a quick birthday card for my sons friend.  I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the flames and washi tape to make the candles.  Then I stamped on the words.

I also did some dyeing but need to get a picture.  Oh and I figured out why the scarf I tried to dye didn't work.  It's polyester... I need to find a white or off white scarf in a different material...

I added some new supplies and am having a sale.  Today only 1/2 everything in the shop!

I have the felt Advent calendar in my shop.  I always get my kids the cheap ones with chocolates in them and for the past few years they have also each gotten the LEGO advent calendars.  My daughter has outgrown the LEGO ones so I am making her one this year.  It is going to be filled with a Christmas charm for each day so she can make her own charm bracelet.

I love The Abominable Snowman

Also adding this to my wishlist in case anyone *ahem underthemountain* does chainmaille...

9  Altered Holiday Art Decorations in Winter Holidays by lindyv321 on: October 23, 2014 12:57:40 PM
I bought a few new things for the upcoming holidays from Retro Cafe Art Gallery and started working on them right away.  It's never too early to craft for the holidays right??

This nutcracker came as a blank canvas.  I coated the whole thing with gesso then used alcohol inks and a sponge for the color.  I added in some details with a paint pen, sharpie, and ink and stamps.  He was originally intended to be part of another project that got scrapped so now he's up for sale in my Shop the Swap Shop

I made a set of these little snowman magnets for my co-workers last year and loved how they turned out.  So I ordered more supplies to make more this year.  Here are the first two
