Make Your Own Hibiscus-Dyed Drop Cloth

  • 4 of 5

Above: Let the flowers and water sit in the sun for a while, then place the drop cloth in the tub and fully immerse in the water. Leave for at least one day. Sarah let hers soak for three days, swirling it daily to get a little more pink color. Then line dry.
