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.

I’m here to share my findings and get you excited to dig through the washing pile and start snipping!
