The most time-consuming part of this project is waiting for them dry, dry, dry.
The lighter trees on the screens is how they look after bleaching.
For deep jewel tones, use Distress Ink Spray.
Super messy - worth the trouble.
The rest of the trees were dyed with Rit Dye in a hot water bath with salt added.
Apple Green with a bit of Gold for a vintage look.
About half of the trees have sold, but there are more in Booth W-10, Riverfront Antique Mall, North Augusta, South Carolina.
