Tie-Dye Shirts

Who does not love doing arts and crafts?

Young, old and everyone in between can get involved in these activities.

If you are someone you loves creating every single thing that you own, you are going to love making your own tie-dye shirts.

You have many different options to choose from when going about this project.

You can go to any arts store and get an already packaged tie-dye kit.

These kits are a little more on the expensive side, but they take the hard work out of the project.

All you have to do is use the rubber bands that come with the product, wrap the shirt in the design that you wish to achieve, add water to the colors and there you go!

Your new shirt is on its way to become a master piece that you can hang up in your closet!

If you are looking for something that takes longer to craft, you can also get all of the items separately in order to make it feel like the amount of work put in, is as meaningful as the crafted item itself.

You can do this by going to any local arts and crafts store and gathering all of the items: rubber bands, white t-shirt, color powders, and plastic squirt or spray bottles.

If you are a nature lover, then this next option is going to have you jumping for joy!

You are able to tie-dye clothes, bed sheets, pillow cases, towels and many more items by using the natural dyes inside of different fruits and vegetables.

If you are looking for a red color, simply boil a cut open pomegranate, the juices will be extracted into the water, depending on the amount of time you leave the fruit in the water will determine how light or dark the hue is on the shirt.

If you are looking for a brown color, you can always use tea, coffee or boiled acorns to achieve the same look as you would if you went out a bought a previously made kit.

No matter which option you decide to go with at the end of the day, it is always a good idea to make sure that you spray the items with vinegar before you put it into the washing machine to ensure that none of your new colors will be washed away.

Before you sit down and start throwing colors all over the fabric, it is recommended that you sit down and really plan out your design, you can always look up options online or come up with your own pattern if you are feeling extra crafty that day!

If you are looking for a great individual or group arts and crafts project, tie-dying shirts and other fabrics, is always a great option.

It is something that can be done quickly or over a process of a few days, the amount of time put into this project all depends on the level of your creativity at the time.

You are going to love your new items and the best part is, you will be able to brag to everyone about how you created it yourself!
