It just isn’t summer without a tie-dye party! No matter the occasion, you can always count on tie dye for a fun time. This tutorial from Oh Yay Studio will show you how to beat the heat at your next summer shindig with the cool tones in the Tulip Shibori Tie-Dye Kit! Whether you’re hanging out with friends, having family over, or hosting a play date for the kiddos, everyone can enjoy a summer tie-dye party!
Substrates to tie dye
Protective surface cover
Wire rack + sheet tray
This tie-dye party is all about ambience! Set up your shibori tie-dye party by prepping your work station; Oh Yay Studio coordinated their shibori tie-dye party with matching table settings!
Prewash (and dry, if using the dry technique) any fabrics that you’ll be tie dyeing. You can tie dye almost anything— shirts, tablecloths, cloth napkins, even unfinished wooden beads!
Prepare your tie-dye solutions according to package instructions and choose your desired folding and binding techniques. In addition to rubber bands, the Tulip Shibori Tie-Dye Kit includes zip ties and twine for intricate shibori tie-dye designs!
Place your project onto a wire rack and tray combo to catch any excess dye and begin to apply the shibori tie-dye to your substrates. Place your dyed projects in a sealed bag or cover with plastic to keep damp while the dye sets, 6 to 8 hours or overnight for more intense colors.
After the dye has set, remove any rubber bands, zip ties, and twine. Launder according to package instructions and reveal your stunning new shibori tie-dye projects!
Once your shibori tie-dye projects are complete, it’s time to kick back and enjoy the rest of the party (and maybe even start planning the next one)! These savvy shibori tie-dye projects will make you want to throw a tie-dye party every summer!
