If you are wondering how to make Groovy Socks, look no further. This DIY tie dye tutorial by Lauri Eaton for I Love to Create tells you how to make your socks stand out from all the rest in a simple and fun afternoon project. Crafting brings people together, so use your tie die techniques to gather a group of friends for some good ol' do i t yourself clothing. It's also a great team bonding idea for those of us with athletes in the family.

How to Make Groovy Socks

  •     Tulip® SuperBIG™ One-Step Tie-Dye Kit™
  •     Tulip® Dye Zip Ties™
  •     Tulip® Surface Cover™


  •           Pastry cooling rack (optional)
  •           Washer/dryer
  •           White tall socks – 100% cotton
  •           Plastic tablecloth



  1. Wash socks and leave damp. Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth and lay damp socks on prepared surface.
  2. Fold each sock in half, top to toe.  Secure at regular intervals with zip ties.
  3. Mix desired dye colors according to package instructions.
  4. Lay tied socks on pastry rack if desired. Tip: Placing socks on a pastry rack while dyeing prevents socks from sitting in a pool of dye and avoids the risk of dye spreading to unwanted sections. Apply desired dye colors to tied sections.
  5. Allow socks to set for time recommended in package instructions, or overnight.
  6. Rinse socks under warm running water to remove excess dye.
  7. Remove zip ties and wash and dry socks as indicated in instructions.
