TWIST the item into the pattern of your choice and tie in place using rubber bands.
POUR the wine into the large stock pot and turn heat to medium. Bring to a boil then turn off the heat.
LOWER the item slowly into the pot and fully immerse in the wine. Allow the item to sit in the wine for at least 4 hours (or overnight for a deeper color). Stir the mixture roughly every 4 hours.
REMOVE the item from the pot, wringing it out lightly and place on a clean baking sheet.
PREHEAT the oven to 170 degrees and put in for 20-30 minutes or until dry. Check on items every 10 minutes.
PLACE on an old towel after items have dried in the oven. Transfer to an ironing board (keeping the towel between the ironing board and the dyed-item to prevent stainage). Iron the items to ensure the color is entirely set into the fabric.
HAND WASH items in warm water to release any loose dye. Rinse in cold water. Enjoy!
