Candy corn is not just for eating you know. In this house we wear it too. I like making my daughters clothing, well not actually “making” but dying and embellishing purchased or hand me downs. She asked me for a candy corn dress and I could not find a plain white dress to dye so I opted for a shirt and tights. She was quite pleased.
Materials for Candy Corn Tights and T-shirt:
- Rit Dye in Tangerine and Lemon Yellow
- White cotton Tights
- White cotton t-shirt
- hot water
- covered work surface
- plastic gloves
- squirt bottle
Directions for Candy Corn Tights:
- Prepare Lemon Yellow Rit dye according to manufacturers directions. The hotter the water used the brighter the color.
- Wash tights and t-shirt to removed any residue. Remove from washing machine and dip in the heated yellow dye bath. Repeat for the shirt. Squeeze to remove excess dye.
- Fill a squirt bottle with heated orange dye and pour above the yellow. Be careful of drips. You will need to lay on a flat covered surface to dry.
