Project 12 {kind of dyed clothes pins}

So….I saw this picture on Pinterest a while back and thought, “Hey, I bet I can do that with clothes pins”.  
Well… I tried.
I used regular old clothes pins…
….put them in a glass bowl and covered with water…
…and added about 30 drops of red food coloring.
After letting them soak ALL DAY and setting them out to dry, 
I got this:

Not too exciting.  
And then, today, I saw this pin….Rit Dye!  Why didn’t I think of that.  
Well, I may still end up using these pins for Peanut’s party, or I may add a little extra embellishment.
….None the less, a lesson was learned and I tried something new!
