Tie-Dyed Luminaries

By:

Luminaries can be used to go outside candles or as a cute little night-light, but when not used as such, they can be a great place to put all of your child's pens and pencils. Check out this cute project for Tie-Dyed Luminaries--this free tie dye pattern is a great one to craft with kids. 

Tie-Dyed Luminaries

 

Materials:

  • Any powder drink container. For the middle size (I usually cut 1.5" from the top).
  • Any kind of lightweight fabric (preferably white)
  • Colored markers
  • Water
  • Tacky glue
  • Scissors

 

Instructions:

  1. For each luminary, get a piece of fabric, about a square for each one that you will cut strips later.
     
  2. Using colored markers, make any kind of designs you want on the fabric. The more colors you use, the better it will come put.
     
  3. Dip the material in water till all the colors seep through the fabric. Squeeze thoroughly till all the excess water goes out. Wait till the fabric dries.
     
  4. Cut strips of fabric to wrap around the container (6" strips are good for this).
     
  5. Using Aileen's tacky glue every now and then wrap the fabric around the cylinder until you get down to the bottom. Cut if you need to when you have excess material. You should see different patterns on each luminary.
     
  6. Put a tea light inside of each luminary and at night you can put each one at your nightstand or end table.
