Ombré Dip Dyed Favor Bags

Ombré Dip Dyed Favor Bags

These darling custom-dyed ombré favor bags are so easy to make and require only a few craft supplies — yet they make a big statement!

Tools & Materials:

  • Small muslin bags
  • Rit fabric dye (in the color of your choice)
  • Printable elephant stencil
  • Scissors
  • Matching acrylic craft paint
  • Pencil
  • Small paint brush

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Mix water with Rit dye in a large bowl to create your preferred color shade. (A very small amount of Rit powder goes a long way, so for a more muted, look dilute with more water.)
  2. Dip each bag in the dye about an inch and hold it there for 3-4 minutes, depending on how dark you want the bottom part of the bag to be.
  3. Let the bag go into the dye another half-inch or inch for one minute. Repeat and hold for another minute. This will create an ombré look.
  4. Let the bags dry completely on paper towels.
  5. Print and cut out the elephant stencil.
  6. Trace the elephant logo onto the bag with a pencil.
  7. Fill in the elephant outline with the matching acrylic paint.
  8. Let dry completely before filling with candy and treats.
