Red, White and Blue Tie Dye T-shirt

Tie dye is so much fun! It's so easy to customize for any theme—just change the colors. We made these to wear on the Fourth of July!
What You'll Need
How We Did It
Some clothing dyes come with squirt bottles. I prefer that kind, because the prep is a little less messy. We always head outside when dealing with dye.
Once it was a nice twisted roll we added rubber bands. The more rubber bands you add, the more contrast you get. We did about eight per t-shirt.
Next, it was time for color. We switched with the red and blue between each rubber-band. Try not to let the colors touch too much. The blending will create new colors and take away from the white we are trying to bring in for our color scheme. Once the shirt is covered in dye, place it in a plastic bag overnight. The next day cut the rubber bands off and wash in warm water with a little detergent.
