Looking for a fun summer craft? We learned how to tie dye a shirt using nothing but Sharpies, paper cups, rubber bands and rubbing alcohol. Simple and fun.
- 1. Position paper cups in various places on the shirt and secure around once with a rubber band.
- 2. Color designs on the cup outline using colorful Sharpies.
- 3. Spray the colored design with rubbing alcohol. You can spray from a medicine dropper or a spray bottle.
- 4. Remove the cups and let shirts dry in the sun.
Use a high quality shirt. I purchased white tees for about $6.00 from Justice for my girls. They worked much better than my $3.00 tee from Rite Aid.
Heat set the color design with an iron before washing.
Sharpies are on sale right now with school supplies.
