There's only one thing "scary" about this Halloween craft…
You could accidentally dye your hands tangerine! Happily that would be perfect for the holiday.
This is a really easy craft and it's also a fantastic stash buster.
Supplies: Rit Dye in Tangerine, Tags (mine are from Office Max), Twine (mine is from The Twinery), and random embellishments– rubber stamps, buttons, ink, ribbon. Anything you are inspired to use. Also grab something to mix the dye in, some old salad tongs and a cookie sheet lined with paper towels. If you happen to have some old rubber gloves– they are a good idea too.
Remove the twine
You could use a bucket to make the dye in. I used a large vase.
Add water. The less water, the more intense the color.
Dip the tags in one by one with the tongs. If you do too many at the same time they can stick together, leaving some areas with any dye.
Place them on a cookie sheet lined with paper towels to dry.
When dry (about an hour and a half) stamp and embellish to you heart's content. I also added the cute orange and white twine.
There are so many uses for these fun tags– candy bags, packaging classroom treats or just as a cute little something to decorate a loaf of homemade pumpkin bread.
