This tablecloth is in perfect condition, but a bit blah for my taste.
Ice Dyed Tablecloth
How many of you have tried ice dying? It might just be my new favorite dying technique because it's so easy and a great way to give something you already have a sweet makeover. I found this tablecloth at a thrift store a couple years ago for $1 and bought it with the intentions of giving it some kind of makeover. Since we've been stuck at home, I've had lots of time to work on my project to-do list and finally got around to bringing this tablecloth to life with some color.
I scrunched up the tablecloth and placed in a shallow container.
I covered the tablecloth in ice.
Sprinkle Rit Dye over the ice.
I used two packages of dye for my tablecloth since it was so big.
Let the ice melt completely. I keep my house at 70 degrees and was surprised that it took almost 24 hours for my ice to melt.
Once all was melted, I rinsed the tablecloth in cold water until it ran clear and hung outside to dry. Wear gloves while you are rinsing the tablecloth so you don't stain your hands.
I love how this tablecloth turned out and I'm so glad I finally decided to give it a much needed makeover.
I keep looking around my house at all the other things I would like to ice dye and can't wait to try two colors at a time.
