Jack-O-Lantern Tie-Dye Technique

Turn a simple bullseye tie-dye into a friendly Jack o’ Lantern by using orange and black dye and accenting with 3D paint!

Step 1:

Pinch fabric at the center of where you would like your jack-o-lantern face to be, and pull into a cone shape. Wrap a rubber band around the fabric, about 3" from the center point.

Step 2:

Wrap another rubber band around the fabric a few inches below the first one.

Step 3:

Apply orange dye onto the first section; this will be your jack-o-lantern face.

Step 4:

Skip the middle section and apply black dye to the remainder of fabric.

Step 5:

After allowing the dye to set for the recommended time and laundering shirt, use a black fabric marker (or black fabric paint) to create face details. Let dry.

Step 6:

If desired, embellish facial details with white or glow-in-the-dark dimensional paint.
