DIY Kool Aid Dyed Cheesecloth

Often times, I do little diys and crafts at home that I do not even think about as anything special, it is just something I have always done or used and one of these diys is to dye cheesecloth.  I love the fabric and design look using cheesecloth, so I dye the cheesecloth to use as napkins, table runners, wrap flower bouquets and to wrap gifts.  It makes the perfect gift for a hostess, wrap a bottle of wine in it and let the hostess know they can use it as a runner, or cut it to use as napkins and more!  If you are looking for an eco-friendly, zero waste wrapping gift idea- these are perfect!

Kool Aid (or any liquid drink concentrate)


So easy to do- drop some kool aid in water, the shades of pink/purple/orange depend on how much or how little kool aid drops you add.

I get my shades by adding the drops  into the water (and by drops I usually add about ten plus in beginning) I submerge the cheesecloth in the kool aid dye mixture, take cheesecloth out, squeeze excess dye and whatever color shows is what you will get, so I add more drops if needed for the color I want.

And then you hang to dry!
