Make a Tie-Dye Beach Towel

How to tie-dye a beach towel, by Crafty Chica.

Why not make a tie-dye beach towel? Sure there are a vast amount of choices at the store, but summer should be about doing your own thing and making memories. I’d say making your own custom towel is a great way to do that.

SUPPLIES for a tie-dye beach towel:

White cotton towels (you can find these cheap at the store). Wash them but don’t dry.

Tulip One-Step 12 Color Tie-Dye Kit Super Big (affiliate link because this is my fave. This is the kit and brand I’ve always used)

Plastic table cover and gloves.

Directions for the tie-dye beach towel:

Set the damp towel on a propped up grid, like a baking cooling rack or metal grid used for shelving. These are not necessary but I like to use them because they prevent the dye from smearing.

Mix your dyes, put on gloves and draw your designs. If you don’t want to draw with the bottles, you can just use rubber bands or a spray bottle.

Cover with plastic and let set for six hours. Then wash in the sink until the water runs clear. Wash in the machine on cold water setting, hang dry to keep color vibrant!
