In the mood for a summer craft? Here are some super fun tie-dye techniques to make with your friends, kids, or even for fundraisers, family gatherings or even group bonding activities.
For most of these, we used Tulip One-Step Kit. I LOVE this kit, it has so many beautiful, bright colors and all you have to do is add water and shake for each bottle. Click on photo to see more details on the product (affiliate link).
You’ll need to find a nice big, flat work area, and line it with a plastic covering. The kit comes with a cover, gloves, and rubber bands. For all of these projects, you have to let the dye set for six hours before washing in the sink until the water turns clear. Then wash in cold water (alone) in the machine, hang dry.
Stick with natural fibers for the brightest, boldest look! Click on each title for the tutorial!

This is another wonderful project by Meghan! It comes out clean and crisp, perfectly light and breezy for summer!
This is another shibori technique. It looks like popcorn, we don’t actually use popcorn! The trick is using small rubber bands, check out the post and video to see!
You can create all kinds of patterns, and even draw with the ice cubes!
Use a bleach pen to remove color, then add dye to give it more pop!
