DIY – Easter Tie Dye

Posted on: March 31, 2012

My sons are too old for us to dye eggs for Easter, but I’m not too old to tie dye t-shirts.  Thinking ahead and looking forward to the heat of the summer I decided to tie dye 2 cotton t-shirts that I will wear with my shorts.


Package of Tulip Fabric Dye, $2.37 at Walmart; 1/4 cup of salt; wooden stick, aluminum pan and a gallon of boiled water.


I followed the directions on the package, however, I did not stir it for an hour, I just made sure the shirt was total submerged and then let it sit for an hour.

I wrapped rubber bands around for the other shirt and placed it in the pan for only 30 mins.


I rinsed both shirts in cool to warm water, dunking them both until the water was mostly clear




Using a free sample of Shout Color Catcher I washed them on a quick cycle in cold water
