Dyed Corn Husks
You know Fall is upon us when the leaves are changing colors, temperatures are dropping and the holiday excitement is building. We love working on home décor projects and especially love how the dyed corn husks turned out. Plus, you can customize the colors to match your fall décor. Even Martha Stewart is doing it!
- Cover table with plastic. Gather supplies.
- Fill glass jar with about 12 ounces of 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. In separate jars, we used Royal Blue, Navy Blue, Purple, Wine, Tangerine and Cocoa Brown. Stir well.
- Test dye color by dipping a paper towel or square 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 bath. Let sit for 5 minutes or until desired color is achieved.
- Remove the husks from the dyebath 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.
