• Plas­tic tub

• Gloves

• Dye bath

• Metal spoon

• Wooden beads

• Non-por­ous bowls

• Leather cord

Here’s how

STEP 1 Place wooden beads into dye bath us­ing a metal spoon.

STEP 2 The beads will float and you will need to push them down and turn them over us­ing the spoon.

STEP 3 If you are af­ter a half-dyed bead look, let them float with­out turn­ing. The beads will be­come darker the longer they are in the dye bath (once the beads are dry they will be lighter in colour).

STEP 4 Spoon the beads out of the dye bath and rinse them in wa­ter un­til the wa­ter runs clear. Leave the beads in an airy spot to dry. String beads on cord.
