Most people think of T-shirts and tie dye going together like peanut butter and jelly (and they totally do), but have you ever thought about tie dyeing other items? Tie dye isn't just for T-shirts, and to prove it, we put together this roundup of cool tie-dye items other than shirts to get you inspired to think outside of the tie-dye box. Check 'em out and get inspired to try something new with tie dye!
- Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit of choice
- Items made from 100% natural fibers (cotton, rayon, canvas, silk)
Give a white pair of canvas kicks a whole new life with vibrant tie dye in an ombre tie-dye pattern. You can squeeze the dyes directly from the bottles onto a damp pair of shoes, or use a paintbrush to brush and blend each color onto the shoes. Such an easy way to create a cool tie-dye look!
You don't have to be a student to tote around a backpack; they come in handy for hauling stuff to work, stuff for baby, traveling and so much more. We love this freestyle tie-dye pattern on a canvas backpack using the Tulip Rainbow Tie-Dye Kit. You can squeeze the dyes randomly on the backpack or you can try the crumple tie-dye technique, which is basically the easiest to do with such fun results!
Pets deserve to enjoy tie dye too! A tie-dye pet bed is the perfect way for your furry family member to chill out after a run in the park or chasing the tennis ball around. The string bullseye tie-dye technique is an easy one for a pet bed; try a bright color like this one or experiment with multiple colors if your pet has a wild side!
Speaking of comfy, cushy tie dye, why not try tie dyeing a pillow? Shibori tie-dye patterns are super chic and never go out of style, and make a great home dec effect you can use to accent your couch, chair or bedding. Get the tie-dye tutorial for this pillow here, then pick up a Shibori Tie-Dye Kit and turn your pillows into tie-dye works of art!
Tassels are a great way to accessorize home decor like baskets, blankets and even items like handbags. Learn how to make and dye your own using a dip dye style tie-dye pattern and the Two-Minute Tie-Dye Kit, which speeds up the dye set process in a major way. It'll take hardly any time to have some fab, colorful new accessories.
