Hey guys its the triplets (Emma, Alyssa and Katie) from I Create Crafts. In today's tutorial we are going to show you how to create your own tie and dye t-shirts. They are so simple and only take a few minutes to create. You can watch the video here.

Have fun and happy crafting!


Step 1: Get a T-shirt (preferably White) and Do the Designing

There are tons of designs you can try. We did the fork twist.

Hold a fork on the t-shirt. Just keep the fork turning. The fabric will itself come together in a swirl sort of a thing.

Step 2: Secure the T-shirt With Rubber Bands

Put rubber bands across the t-shirt to hold it in place and stop it from opening up.

Step 3: Dip the T-shirt in Cold Water and Then Squeeze It Really Well.

Step 4: Add Your Colors.

Mix some dye and water. You can do whatever concentration of color you want, but remember, the more the water, the lighter the color will be. Then using a dispenser, put drops of the color solution wherever you want to. Let it sit for 24 hours.

Step 5: And the Final Results...

This project is a quick, inexpensive way to have some great fun, for all age groups!
