Kool-Aid was a staple of my childhood, and I’m sure it was for many of you too! Today, I’m taking Kool-Aid to a totally different place though…by crafting with it! You may have seen some of the surprising things you can make with Kool-Aid – everything from dying your hair to cleaning your toilet – and today I’m adding another one to the list. This DIY Kool-Aid splattered stationary is simply splattered with colorful Kool-Aid mixtures along the top and bottom to make simple cards or notes you can use for any purpose. They’re really easy to make (not to mention CHEAP!) and I guarantee you’ll enjoy having an excuse to splatter Kool-Aid around!
In order to contain the splatter, you’ll see I used a separate piece of paper to block out the middle. Otherwise, I would have splatter all over the paper, which isn’t the look I was going for. Overall, this craft costs only a few dollars! Pick your favorite colors of Kool-Aid and make a mess!
- White cardstock or note cards
- Kool-Aid powdered drink mixes
- Small cup for mixing
Step 2: Place a piece of cut paper (or a pre-made card) on a surface covered with parchment or newspaper. Then place another piece of paper over it so that only a 1-inch space at the top and bottom are visible.
Set the paper aside to dry and you’ll have lightly splattered stationary to use for cards and other notes!
