Step By Step
Cover table with plastic. Gather supplies.
Fill glass jar with about 12 ounces of very hot water. Shake dye bottle before pouring. Wearing rubber gloves, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of your favorite Rit All-Purpose Liquid Dye. Stir well.
Test dye color by dipping a paper towel or spare tree directly into the dyebath. If color is too light, add more dye; if color is too dark, add more water.
Fluff up the husks of the dried corn upward. Dip just the corn husks into the prepared dyebath. Let sit for 5 minutes or until desired color is achieved.
Remove the husks from the dye bath and place on paper towels to dry.
Make sure to orient the husks in the way you want them to dry around the dried corn.
