Apparently you can. I just tried it and I’m not super thrilled with the results. But probably I did something wrong.
As you know, I recently discovered pine needles basketry an I was amazed with the possibilities! I made this little thingy but, of course, I wanted more.
My lovely parents, who have the patience of two saints, helped me collect this whole bunch of needles.
You know I’m not good at following instructions, so the truth is that I just put some dye in some water for some time. But I really didn’t measure any of those things… ^_^U
And that may explain the results.
The pink ones… yeah, they look kind of pink.
But the “green” ones… not so much. Maybe I had to use more dye, or less water…
Anyway, it’s definitely something to try again soon.
I still have a loooot of needles…, so, between the pandemic mobility restrictions and the surplus of pine needles, everyone be ready to receive coasters and baskets this Christmas! 😁 🌲 ❤️
Stay safe! 😷
