One of our activities at camp last week was decorating camp t-shirts. We had a few options — some girls used one, some used another, some used all 3.
Option #1 was Sharpie Tie Dyeing. I found a few different versions/methods of this when I searched. I’m just going to show you what we did.
Some sort of squeeze bottle or dropper
Start by stretching your shirt over the top of your cup. Put an elastic around the top of the cup.
Make 6-ish dots in a circle.
You can add a different color in between if you want.
Drip alcohol into the center of the circle.
I found that maximum spreading happened at around 15 drops and that anything more than that didn’t really change the look at all.
Try some different colors.
Maybe even put them on in some sort of orderly or artsy manner, instead of all willy-nilly like I did on my test shirt.
At camp, a couple of the girls discovered that you could dye through both the front and back of your shirt at once.
So, get yourself some Sharpies and try it. I think I’m going to do this again with my kids.
