Right now I'm still thinking that dye is my best bet.

Things You'll Need:

  • Old Nylon Stockings
  • Flowers
  • Cookie Sheets
  • Stockpots
  • Cookie sheets
  1. Step 1

    Dry the flowers of your choice in a single layer on a cookie sheet at 150 degrees F.

  2. Step 2

    Put the blossoms in a nylon stocking and tie the top shut.

  3. Step 3

    Cover the flowers with cold water in a stockpot.

  4. Step 4

    Bring the water to a low boil for about ½ hour.

  5. Step 5

    Remove the pot from the heat when the water is the color you want it to be.

  6. Step 6

    Remove the stocking full of flowers.

Tips & Warnings
  • Some flowers, such as dandelions, lose their color when dried and should be processed fresh instead of dried.
  • Dandelion plants produce a nice magenta color; the roots will make purple.


I also found this site which gives a nice color chart. And Ian sent me this.
