How to Dye Tights with Kool-Aid
Ever watch the TV show Bewitched? Yep, you see where I am going with this- haha. It seems fitting for me to “live up to my name” and rock a bewitching costume for Halloween come this holiday. But I must say I have never been the one to get into all the creepy and scary part of Halloween. I love dressing up- don’t get me wrong. But let’s face it, I’m a scaredy cat and overall just like to think happy thoughts. So with that, dressing up as a witch isn’t the most natural for me. Here is my thrifty attempt- but keep in mind this trick can be used for any costume or holiday. The possibilities are as endless as the rainbow (or at least however many cool-aid flavors you can find).
First boil your water, you will want to fill your pot with enough water to dunk the entire material in.
Next add your Kool-Aid, the more you add the brighter the color!! I used almost the entire container.
Use a spoon (not wooden, then there is less of a chance snagging the tights) to stir the tights. Make sure they are fully coated!
The tights will absorb the color immediately, make sure they look even in all areas (unless you are wanting them to be faded/marble looking)
Let them dry completely, an hour in the sun did the trick for me!
And now time to trick or treat!! I LOVE them, so fun!! Just think of all the fun colors you can make for each holiday- too cute!! Now I am really a bewitched Samantha 🙂
