Spooky-Cool Goth Tea Sachets

Hello my friends!  I hope everyone is enjoying the beauty of Fall so far.  In honor of Halloween which is just a short time away, I thought I'd begin preparing for a spooky Goth or Dark Tea.  Hosting a tea party is such a fun way to get together with girlfriends, and if you've read any of my previous posts, you know I love making little tea sachets as gifts.  These have a decidedly darker theme.  I made two sets of sachets, a set of black or purplely-grey, and a set of black and red.  I hope you enjoy the post.  


Black/Purplely Grey Sachets

You will need:
Black fabric dye
Black tissue paper
Black ribbon
Packaged tea bags
Rubber gloves to protect your hands

Begin by washing your doilies in the dye.  I used rit.  Rather than follow the instructions, I used a minimal amount of water and poured directly onto the doilies instead.

When the doilies have absorbed the color,

remove and place between paper towels.

Pat to remove excess liquid.

Place on clean paper towels and allow to dry.  The color isn't exactly black; they are more like a purplely-grey.

Cut black tissue paper to size for the amount of sachets you want to make.

Place packaged tea inside and close by pinching.

Place in the middle of doily, and pinch to close.

Adorn with black ribbon. 

Red and Black Goth Sachets

You will need:
Black lace or Spooky black netting material
Red tissue paper
Packaged tea bags
Red ribbon

Stretch your spooky fabric out.

Cut to size for the amount of doilies you want to make.

Cut your red tissue paper to size.

Place teabag in the center of your tissue paper cutout.

  Pinch to hold closed.

Set in the center of your black cloth.

Adorn with a red ribbon. 

These spooktacular little sachets are perfect for Halloween or a Dark Tea event.
