Even though fashion trends go in and out of style so quickly, they always seem to circle back around. It was only five years ago that big hair made its way back into our lives with backcombing, and Peter Pan collars are reminiscent of the 50s. The one style that remains constant is tie dye. That easy craft is always a great go-to because of its bright colors and the creative possibilities. It’s too much fun to make your own tie dye designs for you and your family. This is a great summer project that will get you outside and having fun with your family.
What I love most about tie dying is that you can make up whatever method you want to achieve the look you want! It’s also a great upcycling craft to revamp old t-shirts, shoes or baby clothes. They give a rich color and a little extra brightness in your life (especially with this wet summer that we have been having!). These are the best tie dye techniques that you or your kids can do! They’re simple designs and unforgettable methods that will have you dye everything you have. Try the classic tie dye swirl technique, or attempt a new salt-resistant method; whatever you choose to do, make sure you wear gloves so that you won’t become your project!

This sounds like a complicated process, but I promise that it is so simple. Similar to a watercolor salt technique, the salt soaks up the dye to give a stippled texture to your apparel. It is easier to make isolated designs by sprinkling the salt in a more concentrated area. I’m super excited to try this one out!
