So you have finished dying your bottle brush trees and there is still dye left in the bowl.
I am not one to waste anything so I always have cloth or shipping tags at hand to soak up the rest of the dye.
I buy the tags by the thousand.
I leave the strings on when dying, but may replace them with ribbon later.
I put a handful into the dye making sure they do not stick together.
Using a metal spoon or paint stick crease the tags for a more distressed look.
I place them outside on screens to dry.
Watch out for the drips if you choose to dry inside.
The dye is permanent on most surfaces.
It takes several hours for them to dry.
This is Apple Green Rit Dye.
I used Old World Santa images to make the tags.
Mod Podge the images to the tags.
Added a layer of Mod Podge over the entire tag.
Painted a gold edge.
Left the back plain for Christmas messages of cheer.
