This is a great teacher or classroom tip!
This is also a great tip for anyone who wants to make things with colored wooden clothing pegs, but does not want to sit for hours painting and painting!! I would honestly use this to color a few… life is toooooo short to paint clothing pegs!!
Dye them with food coloring! It really is that simple.
Mix up your food coloring with a little water – just enough to hold the pegs (they float.) Don’t be shy with the coloring – the more you add the better it will work!
Then drop your pegs into the water and leave overnight – make sure to turn them a few times (as they float.)
Take them out and let them dry…
There you go!! That simple, and what an easy way to do it!!!
Especially if you want to make these butterflies – by the dozen!!
