How to make dip dyed ruffled streamers

How to dip dye party streamers with RIT dye is not only fun, easy but super affordable too!   ruffledstreamer a7b493b02ac813251108fa084bedd1f6

I found bright white streamers at the 99 cent store but knew I wanted color for little Ella’s 12th birthday surprise party…. of course I just planed to dye them!  I honestly was a bit scared but it was so easy and cheep I went for it!!!

 

I put 50% water to50% RIT in a small plastic container and just set the white streamers directly in…  This made the stripes!  To do the solid colors I simply added to a larger container.

 

Let them air dry outside for several hours.  They started to “ruffle” on their own a bit…

 

Took 2 or 3 different ones and sewed down the edges to make the ruffled effect I pushed the streamers aggressively under the foot to gather for me…
