Rainbow Doily Banner Tutorial



Great Dollar Store craft...
The entire project was less than $8.
I bought 8 inch and 10 inch doilies from the Dollar Tree,
20 cent packets of Kool-Aid, and a piece of cotton string.
Add hot water to your containers...
I had to add a few drops of yellow food coloring,
the yellow Kool-Aid was super light.

Left soaking over night, and in the next morning dried them, be careful they don't touch, the color will bleed when wet.
Put a piece of tape around the end of the string.
Weave through the folded doily...

Hi Jenn :-)

You never cease to both amaze and amuse me with your creativity.

Your banner is definitely cute! One ? is, are you going to leave it hanging on the fence, or do you have a different place in side in mind for it?

2nd ? - you too live with a household of males. What was their take on this "girlie" creation?

I am going to go share the link to this posting with a friend whom I KNOW will think it rocks!

i'm adding it to my summer craft list.
i think my son will think it's rad to dye things with kool-aid. ;)
