Food Coloring Tie Dye

If you find yourself wanting to hop on the tie dye trend, try this pantry staple method! To do this, you will need:

A white t-shirt

Food coloring

Vinegar

Rubber Bands

Steps to a successful dye:

1- Fill a large bowl with equal parts vinegar and water. Soak your t-shirt for at least one hour.

2- Ring out your shirt and start to add rubber bands. The rubber bands will determine the pattern of the tie dye. If you spin it into a circle, and rubber band it securely, you will have the classic spiral pattern.

3- Fill an empty water bottle (preferably with a squeeze cap, but if you don’t have that, pierce a small hole in the lid of the bottle) with 1/2 cup of water and 10 drops of the dye color of your choice.

4- Start to fill the different sections of your shirt marked by the rubber bands until everything you want is filled.

5- Put your shirt in a plastic bag and let rest for 8 hours. Once the 8 hours has passed, rinse your shirt in cold water, let dry, and it’s ready to wear!
