Oh Martha

Martha, Martha, Martha…why must you be
so creative??? You cost me a lot of money this
weekend at Michael’s and Joann’s buying supplies
to copy all your craftiness. I must say though that I
love, love, love
the super cute necklace that
I made. I might just have to go back to Michael’s and
Joann’s so I can make more…maybe even some bracelets.

Here is Martha’s how-to link for
Dyed Wooden Beads Necklace

and…here is my how-to!

What you need:
Rit dye
Wooden beads ~ unfinished
Plastic Box
8 cups of hot water
1 1/2 tsp of Rit dye
String or leather cord (I used satin ribbon)

**I was surprised how quick the dye worked on the beads.
The beads in the picture below were soaked in Dark Brown Rit
for 5 minutes! Super easy. Super quick. Super cute!
