Summer Kids Craft: DIY Tie-Dye Bandanas
Colorful tie-dye bandanas make a great summer vacation or birthday party project for kids. And because this technique is contained in a half-gallon jar and doesn’t require any actual tying or rubber bands, the mess is contained and cleanup is easy!
Supplies: craft gloves, white cotton bandanas, half-gallon jar, powdered permanent fabric dye, crushed ice
Place first bandana in bottom of half-gallon jar.
Pour layer of ice over bandana.
Pour layer of powdered dye over ice.
Repeat steps 1-3 for as many bandanas as desired or jar will allow. Tip: For best results, layer complementary dye colors such as blue and green.
Let sit for approximately two hours. Tip: Amount of ice, dye and time may be adjusted for optimal vibrancy.
Rinse out dye until water runs clear and then allow bandanas to dry completely. Tip: When washing bandanas after dying, use cold water only.
