Top Creative Ideas for DIY Tie-Dyes You Will Never Find in a Shop

One of the biggest trends in 2020 is our favorite Tie-Dyes. Fashion designers from all over the world started to use them on T-shirts, jackets, jeans, and even underwear! But why should we deprive ourselves of the pleasure of creating a unique and personalized t-shirt design at home?

Making a Tie-Dye by yourself saves money and brings a lot of joy. Prepare dyes, soda ash, rubber bands, gloves, paper towels, and a lot of imagination because we are about to make the most creative Tie-Dyes.

A Watermelon Slice Dress

Let’s admit it, watermelons look very cute. Using pink, red, light, and dark green dyes, you can create a T-shirt or a dress that resembles a slice of watermelon. This is a great option for a pool party or a beach day!

Here you can find a guide on how to do it properly:

  • Find an old oversized white T-shirt. You can steal one from your boyfriend or a friend if they let you do it. If you don’t have a white T-shirt, it can be light-yellow, very light-pink, or light-grey one.
  • Wash and dry it.
  • Cut the sleeves. You can make the armholes slightly dropped if you like it.
  • Soak a T-shirt in a solution of warm water and soda ash for about 10 minutes.
  • After soaking, wring the shirt out thoroughly.
  • Now, you can start the magic!
  • Dye the lower part (around 4 inches in width) of a T-shirt with dark and light green colors. Use a rubber band or tie a knot to separate a green area from the white one. Don’t let green color stain the white part. After you finished dyeing, wrap a plastic bag around a painted area.
  • The top piece of a T-shirt should be dyed with pink and red. Use a lighter color on top and the darker one on the bottom. You can also add dark-orange if you have it.
  • Put a T-shirt into a plastic bag and wait, wait, wait. After at least one day, it will be ready.
  • After 24-48 hours, dry your masterpiece. Then, wash it in warm water a couple of times. Don’t put other clothes into the washing machine together with a Tie-Dye the first time!
  • Now, when your Tie-Dye is washed and dry, you can draw black seeds on a red part with a sharpie or embroider them, if you are patient enough.

Your super cute, hand-made watermelon Tie-Dye is ready. It can be a beautiful gift for a special person. Or your new favorite piece of clothing. The decision is yours!

Create a Family Look with Your Pet
