While looking for a garter to match my daughter's prom dress we came up with nothing that matched....last year I made her garter and this year I decided to start with a pre-made inexpensive garter...her dress was black with shades of teal and blues...I bought a white garter (as I could not find any black ones)...
I got out my Earth Safe Finishes Lampblack Colorant
Put a dropper of ESF Lampblack Colorant and a 1/2 cup water into a plastic cup.
Dipped the garter in.
Covered it completely.
Took it out to dry. Once dried it needed to be heat set, using an iron works best but I did not want to iron this as it was a bit delicate so I used a heat gun to heat set it.
I added shimmer fabric and ribbon.
It matched perfectly and was so easy to get the right color....
