From vintage-inspired lampshades to celebrity heads, ombre—gradation in color—is everywhere. But before you start dying your house, wardrobe, and hair all ombre everything, remember that this deceptively tricky technique can require more than just a steady hand and a focused attention. Thankfully, this week's projects use several alternative approaches to the art of tinting, with skill sets ranging from dip-dye difficult to beads-on-a-string simple.
Ombre beaded necklace. My own ombre necklace was easy: Just take thread, a necklace clasp, and a couple dozen beads in four shades, from red to peach. You don't need to use a ton of hues to get ombre right—just focus on a few that get you from light to dark, and you'll be set.
Ombre chevron curtains. Ombre dying a full set of curtains with the perfect gradient requires an expert hand. The rest of us can try these ombre painted chevron curtains from remodelaholic, which help take the guesswork out of the intricate dye process. No need to dye your way to the perfect shade—just keep a handle on your colors through this incredible chevron pattern.
Ombre paint chip art. Another fun variation: This paint chip art project from The Lovely Cupboard mixes up the typical one-color shading by adding in some accents from complimentary colors, too. The easy part: Collect enough paint chips, and you'll already have the correct shades in each color that you need. Another approach for this project would be to use papers of similar colors, then insert some patterned triangles, too.
Dip-dye scarves. This ombre dip-dye scarf tutorial from Jezebel is both super detailed and multi-functional. Use this fabric technique to dye your way to ombre printed head scarves, sashes for dresses, or amazing ombre undergarments—then use the excess dye and fabric to make another set of suji dyed scarves.
