Have you seen all of those pictures of the tie dye projects that people do and wondered how they do them? Well we can show you how to make awesome colorful tie dye shoes, shorts, and shirts.

 

 

For the shoes you need:

1. sharpies

2. white shoes

3. rubbing alcohol

4. eye drop

Steps:

With your sharpies create any pattern that you want on the shoes. Then, take the eyedropper and take the rubbing alcohol and drop it all over the shoes. Let dry.

 

For the shirt or shorts you need:

1. Gloves

2. Tie Dye kit (Got mine from Hobby Lobby)

3. Plain white shirt

4. Rubber Bands

5. Washing Machine

6. Trash Bag/Newspaper(Protect where you’re doing it)

Steps:

First open up your tie dye kit and pull everything out. Next, Decide what type of tie dye pattern you want(Spiral,Stripes,etc.).  After you have decided band your item in whatever way you want. After you have your plain item with rubber bands around it you can start adding the dye in whatever pattern you want. You just add it wherever you like and if you want you can leave some white. Then, Let them sit overnight so the dye can absorb. Finally, wash the item 0in the washer and you are finished.
