If you’re looking for ways to have some fun, we have just the activity for you. Presenting the Tie-Dye DIY, where you colour a t-shirt or any other white garment of your choice into patterns as random, crazy and different as time right now. You can think of it a souvenir from the quarantine era of your life!
While reincarnation of human is a matter of fiction, but it can be a reality in the case of your old white t-shirt. We guarantee you that with this DIY.
If you don’t have a white t-shirt to spare, you can also take a black t-shirt and tie-dye it using bleach. Although it is advised to take the help of an adult while using bleach.
So let’s gear up and begin dyeing right away, because any day is a good day to dye hard!
1. Fabric colours of your choice
2. Spray/dropper/squeeze bottle
3. 1 glass of water
4. White cotton t-shirt/handkerchief/any other cotton garment of your choice
5. Plastic sheet
6. Rubber bands
You can wear this reincarnated t-shirt of yours or even gift it to your friends and family. And the best part is how simple and amusing it is. “It’s virtually impossible to tie-dye incorrectly,” says textile artist Shabd Simon-Alexander, author of Tie-Dye: Dye It, Wear It, Share It. And just as the name of her book suggests we urge you to – dye it, wear it, and share your Tie-Dye DIY experience with us in the comment section below!
