Hello my dear friends! As promised I’m continuing with the little series of my simple Christmas ideas. Today I have for you another pretty project – ombre gift tags. It’s a perfect finishing to decorate your gifts for any special occasion. I have to admit, I love how pretty you can make things look by experimenting a little bit! And here is a simple tutorial how to achieve this result.
You will need:
-2 Glasses -A string
How to do it?
Step 1 Mix a spoon of dye / food colorant with a glass of tap water.
Step 2 Pour about 1 cm of colored water into a second glass.
Step 3 Dip your empty tag in 1 cm of dye and leave it for 20 mins.
Step 4 After 20 minutes, pour another 1 cm of colored water into the glass (now you should have 2 cm of colored water). Leave your tag inside for 15 more minutes
Step 5 Reapeat until you recive the desired number of shades (Follow the picture below)
Step 6 Once you are happy with the ombre result, let it dry for about 1 hour. Step 7 Decorate! Add stickers / names / personalized notes.
Tip – In order to achieve harsh lines, let it stand still inside the glass. If you prefer more smooth result, you need to move the tag back and forth while dying (you can see the difference in the photos)
Now I only need to get few more presents and it’s time to wrap, wrap, wrap! :)))How are your preparations going?
