Summer for us at Simple Acres is all about making lasting memories with our family. This may entail family road trip, back yard camp outs, planting a garden, family gatherings or getting crafty as a family. A tee and a tie dye kit costs roughly $8 and makes several tie dye items! This DIY took 10 minutes or less start to finish excluding the 6-8 hour dry time then washing.
Tie Dye Tee Directions:
1. Lay your shirt out.
2. Pinch the shirt in the middle and twist in a pinwheel .
3. Place rubber bands around the tee until it is evenly spaced around the pin wheel.
4. Add a different color of dye in each segment. I had fun teaching the kids how to make other colors by mixing their primary colors!
6. Wrap your tee in a plastic bag and let sit for 4-8 hours or more.7. Wring out and rinse in a sink or tub.8. Wash tee in washing machine separately from other clothing items the first few wash cycles.
