How-to: Overdye Upcycled Felted Wool to Create Custom Colors

felted wool Christmas trees overdyed greenNotice that my trees still aren’t a perfect, uniform green, but that wasn’t the result that I was after. When you overdye a piece, you’re never certain exactly what color you’ll come up with in the end. But with careful forethought and a judicious hand in the dye pot, you can absolutely use overdyeing to mask an offensive color and turn it into something far more appealing to your eye.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
