|I am having so much fun!....|
Pinterest and Bloggers did talk about bleaching Christmas trees but I never did it my self.
You will need:
Green Christmas trees
Two mason jars
Needle nose pliers
Rit Petal Pink Dye
Dip the Christmas trees in the bleach and wait.......in few seconds your trees should be white. With the help of your needle nose pliers grab the trees and pull them out of the mason jar. I did manage to deep 3 trees in the bleach at the same time.
When you have bleached all the trees, rinse them under cold water and dry them.
( I am saving the bleach in the mason jar for now)
Fill the other mason jar with water and few drops of the pink dye, not too much. Screw the lid back on the mason jar and shake. Deep the Bleached Christmas trees and wait until they turn pink. The more they are dipped the deeper the pink. (dipped/deeper...ah!), I had to ask my son how to spell dip and deep. They both sound the same.....
Dry the now pink trees with paper towel. I like the base to be white so I use a small brush and white acrylic paint.
I am not finished with this project but I wanted to share it with you before the weekend.
Ciao for now
