After deciding to use the baby bed springs as a memo board (still undecided as to where it'll be, but most likely in Lily's room and/or for her art from daycare), I realized I would need to find something to attach the art to the box springs.
I thought about mod podging fabric/paper to one side but that would take away from Lily's art work. Then I found out about coloring clothes pins with dye. I was definitely not about going to go buy a bunch of fabric dye as I wanted this project to remain free/cheap.
Enter food coloring! Here's green...
And, although blurry, here's pink, purple and teal (I mixed blue and green).
Here's what to do:
Add vinegar. Maybe a cup. It's not precise. I just poured a bunch in there. The other colors all had a variety of vinegar in there.
Then a few drops of color. I use Americolor, which I absolutely love.
Then wait. I let it boil a little bit, nothing major, and then let it sit. I started with 20-30 minutes but wanted a darker color, so I let it sit while I cleaned the house.
