Not sure what to make? Get inspired with these 10 fun DIY projects that will make your National Tie-Dye Day even brighter!
- Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit of choice
- White 100% cotton clothing to tie dye
- Canvas shoes
A scarf is one of those versatile accessories everyone should have in their closet! They’re perfect for adding a pop of color to any outfit, protecting you from the sun, tying in your hair … you get the point. We love the ombre tie-dye pattern on this pretty tie-dye scarf, but you can really try any tie-dye technique for your fun DIY project. Choose colors to match other clothes in your wardrobe or try something new and totally different!
Like scarves, kimonos are so versatile! So if you don’t have one in your wardrobe yet, take this as a sign to swoop up a kimono for another fun DIY project for National Tie Dye Day. If you want to create a similar look to this one, try the accordion tie-dye pattern in any color that fits your vibe. Your new tie-dye kimono will look amazing with anything from shorts and dresses to a swimsuit while lounging by the pool. Speaking of swimsuits …
Make your summertime sizzle with an Electric Neon tie-dye swimsuit that’s brighter than the sun. One of the things we love most about the Electric Neons Dye Kit is that the dyes work on both natural and synthetic fabrics, making it much easier to tie dye swimsuits. Once this fun DIY project is done, you’ll be ready to make a splash in bold tie-dye style!
Put some extra pep in your step with tie-dye shoes in vibrant rainbow colors that have you feeling like you’re walking on sunshine! As long as your shoes are a natural-fiber fabric like canvas, you can add them to your list of fun DIY projects this National Tie Dye Day. Hop on over to this roundup of tie-dye shoes to get inspired for adding color to your own kicks. PS. Tie dyeing your shoes is a great way to give an old grungy or stained pair new life!
If you haven’t gotten your hands on our Reverse Tie-Dye Kit yet, why not? Reverse tie dye is a great way to change up traditional tie dye because you get to remove color from darker clothing, then add tie-dye colors of your choice back in! You can also create any tie-dye pattern you want to with reverse tie dye, just like with regular tie dye. So grab a dark tee, some tie dye, and fall in love with the heart tie-dye technique or any one of our many other techniques!
Get your little ones involved in a fun DIY project for National Tie Dye Day too! We don’t know about you, but we think matching mommy and me tie-dye dresses are about as cute as tie dye gets. You can even change up the look with T-shirts for the whole fam instead of just dresses for the ladies. Whatever you choose to do, tie dye makes a great family activity for any day of the year, not just National Tie Dye Day!
90s style is back in a big way, and we’re all about it. Channel your inner grunge goddess with flannel-style tie dye or hit the mark with a bullseye bodysuit that puts you front and center on the trendy fashion scale. Grab your girl crew for some National Tie Dye Day creativity, then head out and make the world your runway.
Show your jeans some tie-dye love too! One of the things we enjoy most about tie dye is that no two projects ever turn out exactly alike, so you’ll have a pair of jeans that can’t be bought anywhere. Add your favorite color combo in random or defined tie-dye patterns for one-of-a-kind jeans that are perfect for one-of-a-kind you!
Guys can wear tie dye too! If you haven’t seen any guys in your life sporting this hot trend lately, it’s time to round them up and give them a tie-dye kit and a fun DIY project for National Tie Dye Day. Any tie-dye pattern in any color palette will go with any guy’s favorite looks!
And last but not least, we can’t forget to include tie-dye loungewear in the mix! Tie-dye sweats, joggers, hoodies and other loungewear have been THE fashion statement this past year, and we for one, are not sad about it. Who doesn’t love being comfortable, and who doesn’t love tie dye? Throw in a matching mask for a total tie-dye fashion statement every time you leave the house! We hope this roundup of fun DIY projects for National Tie Dye Day has you inspired to celebrate in creative, colorful ways.
