It’s no secret that the ombre concept continues to hold a top spot for unique and lovely event design details. A modern twist to the traditionally romantic watercolor painting technique, ombre offers a fresh twist on creative ways to play with colors. And the end result, although bringing with it a definite contemporary feel, is just as striking as its predecessor. Care to incorporate the ombre concept into your upcoming event? Then check out our step by step on how to get the look, demonstrated on some bath salt filled white linen favor baggies.

The Step by Step

Step 1 (not shown here): dissolve dye as per package instructions. If using multiple colors, keep them separate.

Step 2 (not shown here): into each of your three bowls, add approximately 1.5 – 2 cups of water. Next add in your dye (ensure it’s still warm from the dissolving process) starting with 1.5 tablespoons of dye into the first bowl, 1/4 cup into the second, and 1/2 cup into the third. This will give you three various concentrations of dye.

Step 3: dip your linen baggie into the first, least concentrated bowl of dye, all the way to the point your’d like your ombre to fade out. We went approximately a quarter of the way up the bag. Hold for just a few seconds. Remove and dip into the next bowl, to the point where you’d like that level of concentration to end, about the half way mark of the entire ombre fade. Lastly dip the very bottom of the baggie into the highest concentration of dye, which will give you the darkest shade of your ombre effect. Remove, wring out and let dry.
