Tie Dye

DIY’s are my absolute favorite things to do! They’re super fun, creative and can really spice anything up! For this DIY my friend and I wanted to do your basic Tie Dye T-shirts. We bought the kits from Michaels Craft Store  and I already had a bunch of white t-shirts so we used those! We had so much fun doing it and we’re extremely happy with how they turned out! Now let’s get into the fun!

What You’ll Need:

What To Do: 

Side Spiral Design

  • Pinch and begin twisting the area you want the spiral to appear on. (My friend chose the side of the shirt)
  • Once whole shirt is spiraled, take rubber bands to wrap around shirt to hold design in place.
  • Choose your color(s) and begin pouring the dye onto the shirt where you want it. (My friend did each triangle of rubber band a different color)

*Once you have dyed your shirt, wrap it in plastic wrap, or a plastic bag to keep damp before rinsing.

Crumple Design

  • Crumple shirt beginning from the middle, making sure to get the entire shirt all crumpled.
  • Tie your rubber bands around shirt to keep design in place.
  • Choose color(s) and begin pouring dye where you want it to be placed. (I chose one color, so I poured the dye all over the shirt)

*Once you have dyed your shirt, wrap it in plastic wrap, or a plastic bag to keep damp before rinsing.

*Keep shirts in plastic for 6-8 hours (I kept mine overnight and rinsed them the next morning).

  • Rinse shirts with water, until it runs clear.
  • Wash separately in washer machine with a tiny amount of detergent.
  • Place in dryer or hang dry.

That’s all you have to do to create beautiful Tie Dye shirts!

My friend and I wanted to create more and we had a lot of dye left so here are some pictures of all the shirts we made.


Hello loves! My name is Theresa Marie. I am a 21 year old college student, living in NY. I love iced lattes, animals, the fall and winter seasons, fashion, beauty, diys and food!
I started this blog in January of 2017 so that I can share the things I love and have a place for my passion of writing. Theresa Marie Daily (TMD), is a place of comfort, where you can come for recipes, beauty tips/favorites, see my personal style, fashion tips, lifestyle tips/tricks, diys, and other miscellaneous posts. I have a category called “Talks With Theresa Marie” (TWTM), where each month, I post about an occurring issue, or something random that I just feel like talking about, and I give my opinion/view on it. TWTM, gives you a personal insight on who I am and my beliefs/opinions on certain things. I hope to inspire each and every one of you to go outside the box with your food, lifestyle and personal style, and just enjoy life. Thank you so much for following along and reading!
