Here is what the bell looked like when I got it.
I looked and looked in my stash to see just how I was going to change the colors from pink to purple. I decided I was going to make some mist spray since I never did it before and I apparently needed some.
I went to the local dollar general and got some alcohol and spray bottle. They dont sell any type of dye so I had to go to Walmart for that.
I ended up getting 2 bottles of the Rit dye in the colors or purple and denim.
Here is everything I used on my project.
I started by making my spray. I filled the spray bottle to where you see it with the alcohol. Then just added the Rit in until i was content with my color. Taking the hot glue gun I put the flower trim around the handle of the bell.
When I was finished with that I took apart the flowers. Taking the leaves off and the big one I say the small ones inside my trash can and sprayed the heck out of it. They was a real deep purple but once air drying they lightened up .
After I sprayed the little ones I then went and sprayed the big one. It was originally white and pink. I kinda dried it a little with a napkin then let it finish air drying.
When I was content with my flowers I went on to dye the ribbon which was a lighter pink. I loved how the ribbon came out. The color is beautiful. After it air dried I tied it back on to the base of the handle like it originally was.
After I got all of that done I went hunting gems. I used the ones I kept from my I-Rock. The ones I used are a deep deep purple. I glued them to the base of the bell with the glossy accent.
Here is the finished bell.
I started the day making 2 mothers day cards. One for my mom and one for my sister. I used Cricut Craft Room to make them. They are cut at 4 inches . I made purple for mom and orange / yellow for my sister. A little chalk ink to edge and gel pens to outline.
Really hoping you liked my mothers day creation for my mom. I know she loved it.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project. Did you make anything ? If so what did you create? I'd love to see it.
