Whether you prefer paint or actual dye, adding a dipped effect to your home decor is a DIY we can’t resist. Easy enough to do with your kids (with your help, of course!) and sophisticated enough to decorate with in any home, it’s easy to see why people dip-dye anything they can get their hands on.

half a picture frame (picture included)

Painting over your friends’ faces in a group shot probably won’t go over that well… OR be visually pleasing. If you’re into this idea, choose a cheap vintage print instead.

bookends

 

Okay, okay. So this might be more “ombre” than “dip-dyed”, but the visual is so stunning (and affordable) it doesn’t even matter.

ornaments

As well all know, keeping holiday decorations up through every season is an easy way to stay festive. Our favorite decor item to keep around is ornaments—especially the colorblocked kind. We love these wood ornaments painted with pastels.

wood utensils

 

Similar to the wood ornaments, we’re all for painting the handles of wood utensils. This is the easiest way to bring pops of color into your kitchen if you’re struggling to spice up your whitewashed rental. If you lean towards more Scandinavian-inspired designs, paint the ends grey or black instead.

dresser

 

There’s nothing we love more than a good furniture hack. Paint half (a quarter, or really any fraction) of your dresser, making sure to leave some exposed wood finish for a modern look.

glass jars

 

Similar to DIY-ing your vases, you can add paint to any glass jar and turn it into a vase. Use a different technique to add paint to the bottom of the jar before turning it over so the paint literally drips before it dries.

stools

 

Dip-dyed legs is one of our favorite ways to add personality to an otherwise plain stool. You can purchase variations of these stools (domino loves these Serena & Lily), but DIY-ing is always fun and affordable.

Personalize your own stationery by dipping plain white notecards into your choice color of dye. The result will be a nice watercolor effect.

candles

 

Crush some crayons, melt, and dip for a gradient-colored candle. This is a great way to add color to basic white candles without buying an expensive dish or different scent.

baskets

 

Two-toned baskets (especially used as planters) have us really excited. Dipping is the way to go, just make sure to create a defined line by painting an evenly across the divide post-dipping.

wall hangings

 

Wall hangings are EXPENSIVE. Make your own—and add some color—by tying dip-dyed yarn around an old branch. Let different lengths of yarn soak in the dye for different periods of time for a more gradient look.

walls

 

Though this is more “two-toned” and less “dip-dyed”, we’re including it because it’s one of our absolute favorite paint trends.

As if filling dinosaur figurines with succulents isn’t cool enough, create a two-toned mini planter with gold and white paint
