Hey Friends! Use up those extra supplies with this simple craft.
You could accidentally dye your hands tangerine! Happily that would be perfect for the holiday.
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.

Those are adorable! Did you go to Ruffles & Rust? I did but didn’t take any good photos. :( I did get some fun stuff, though.

Malia…these are so cute. I think you should have a book with all of your awesome ideas/creations/recipes in it. I would love one for reference!

Those are too cute! That’s my favorite part about Halloween – making fun things for the kids to use. Those will make great bookmarks for lots of little readers!
Those are so cute. Are your hands orange?

Oh my gosh! So cute, Malia! My favorite is the little pumpkin one!
Great idea! I would never have the time to do this right now so I’ll just drool over yours! LOL

Malia, they all turned out wonderfully! Such a great stashbusting project. I especially love the tag with the house silhouettes and the dangly fringe, and I’m positively smitten with the googly-eyed spider!
