The original idea came from this page (martha’s photographers are somewhat superior obviously!). I picked up the towels from ikea and found these e-a-s-y dye packets from dharma trading company online. the packets are so easy to use! i used them in my front load washer and they did not proceed to dye everything i washed afterwards thank the lord! although i heard the dyes may not be as easy to work with in top loaders, the colors came out really nicely for me. i think i would choose a few more jewel tones next time (i thought yellow would be more golden). overall, i was pretty happy with it all!
Did you do any fun projects in place of all store bought gifts this year?
