Upcycling, recycling, and just plain re-doing your wardrobe is entirely on trend right now. Combine your love of recycled crafts with the style of brightly colored tie dye designs by making these charming DIY shorts. The Dipped Shorts Tie Dye Technique video shows you how to use RIT dye and dip dyeing techniques to turn a plain pair of white shorts into stunning and gorgeous wearable wonders. This tutorial uses an old pair of white shorts, but you could easily use shorts of any color. For a more grown-up and trendy look, consider dying an old pair of jean shorts in an indigo dye to darken the denim. This how to tie dye technique could easily be applied to a pair of jeans, as well.

The video tutorial was super helpful! My daughter and her team mates just made matching tie dye outfits for an upcoming game. I didn't even have to help, they just watched the video!

Very cool! I am glad you found the video helpful. We'd love to see a photo of their finished product. :) -Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts
