Return to a favorite summer pastime, or try it for the very first time! Tie dying t-shirts has always been one of our favorite summer activities, and we wanted to share it with all of you! Put our love for artistic expression together with our friend Smokey Bear, and you have a combination near and dear to our hearts.
Tie dying tees is simple and fun, an activity that people of all ages can enjoy. You'll just need a few "ingredients!" Here's what we recommend to ensure tie-dying success.
- Your white Smokey Bear tee
- Vibrant colored dyes (we believe the darker, the better!)
- Rubber gloves
- Rubber bands
- A drying rack or clothes line
This is the part of the process where creativity shines. The color palette you choose, the way you fold your tee, and how you wrap it with rubber bands all help determine your final pattern. Take a look at this great resource if you need help deciding how to achieve the pattern you want!
Final steps: Let it dry, then wash!
