A Learning Curve for Grandma

This adventure started by soaking the Walmart clothesline in clear water in the sink, so it would absorb die.  Kool-Aid has acid in no vinegar was needed package of grape and one of cherry. mixed in a random jar in very hot water. 
 I later added another grape.
Using what was on hand???  Come on...the insurance buys one many gifts when having surgery.
Must put all things to good use!!
Plus this went into the microwave!!
Into the microwave 2 minutes on high.
Five minutes out stirring...
Back into microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Five more minutes stirring.
I am usually not a rule follower.....but this time I followed U-Tube instructions.
I poured the die outside and brought the rope inside for a rinse.
Just remembering that Walt Disney filed for bankruptcy 5 times before he created
Back to scratch....Walmart rope $1.88
Kool-Aid  12 cents each.equals 36 cents.
My time invaluable.
Walmart listed no content information on the rope.
Creative grandma is now sitting under her tree to read a book.
Remembering once again, that the turtle does not move until
it sticks its neck out xo

If it was cotton it would have taken a bit of color if it's synthetic not so sure if it will take. Is this for a costume?

Hahahaha! So sorry. But it sure taught us all a lesson too! Your pink pan cracked me up. Pardon my unintentional pun. Please do not wash and use as a serving dish or decorative floral vase. And also, I hope your grands didn't drink the koolaid. 🙄
