Quarantine Crafting: Tie Dye at Home
We’ve been sheltering in place since March and WOW are my arts and craft skills being put to the test.
Last week, my oldest and I tried our hands at tie dying a bunch of white shirts. It’s been a LONG time since I tie dyed anything (maybe high school?) so we watched a few YouTube videos first. Thankfully, tie dying is a very forgiving craft and we were pretty excited with the results.
I ordered a few shirts from Target and they arrived all clean and full of possibility.
Time to Tie Dye
We did a few different styles, the classic “spiral”, the “bullseye” and the “crinkle” — for my shirt, I did a combo crinkle and hand-painting look that turned out really cool.
The Rainbow of Results
Super excited with how everything turned out — my little rainbow loving guy in particular loved the bright colors!
We used all of the dye I bought, so I immediately ordered some more so we could finish off the white shirts we bought. Plus, as soon as I posted the photos to Facebook, my mom wanted us to make her one too! Will let ya’ll know how round two turned out.
