These pretty Kool Aid Dip Dyed Tassels are perfect party decor, or a great little bunting for around the house.

Dip Dyeing them in Kool-Aid is the perfect way to add some ombre colour in an inexpensive and non-toxic way.

We did ours with Sharkleberry Kool-Aid and it gave us a pretty peachy pink, but by using different flavours of Kool-Aid you could create lots of different colours.

Kool Aid Dip Dye Materials:

  • Kool-Aid (Sharkleberry or any flavour you like the colour of)
  • Cotton Yarn
  • Piece of Cardboard

How To Make Kool Aid Dip Dyed Tassels:

1.  Start by making simple tassels.  Be sure your yarn is a natural fiber like cotton or wool so it will accept the dye easily.  

To make the tassel, wrap the yarn around a piece of cardboard about 30-50 times -the more you do the thicker your tassel will be.  Tie the top together firmly.  Using scissors, cut the opposite end of the tassel.  Use another small piece of yarn and tie it around the tassel to create the little bump a short space from the top.

2. To make the Kool Aid dye, mix one package of Kool Aid with 1 cup of hot water in a mug.

Dip the tassel in the Kool Aid, leaving the bottom in longer to create the ombre effect.  Rinse with cold water.

3.  Hang your tassels to dry -and enjoy the awesome scent of the Kool Aid -haha (and if you’re like me, all the childhood memories).

When the tassels are dry, string them onto another piece of yarn to create the bunting.
