Tie Dye DIY

Tie Dye DIY

Hello my friends! So I hope you all are doing great! I’m doing really good, Getting ready for our family vacay. We are headed to Vegas soon. We wanted to get in a family vacay before the kiddos start school. Looking forward to that! So today I wanted to share a quick DIY. So I’ve talked about it on another post and I’m sure you noticed or have already jumped on the trend, Tie Dye! It’s everywhere. I’m loving it! You can find it anywhere. But I thought it would be fun to do some of our own.

We got together Monday and had a fun afternoon of some good old tie dying. My mom used to teach an art class and I remember her doing a tie dye session. She hadn’t done it in a while but her knowledge just came flowing back. My son, my nephew and my niece had never done it so they even enjoyed it. They are teenagers and young adults so that shows you how fun it is. Breaker even jumped in on the fun. He helped me with mine and you’ll see in the photo above that a little heart appeared on it. I thought that was so cute, A heart is our thing.

So first supplies you’ll need the actual dye, you can find these at Joanns fabrics or Michaels craft store. I say go with who ever has the best coupon. You’ll also need a pack of rubber bands they have these also, they have a bag with different sizes. Gloves because it will stain your hands, My mom went in all free and her hands were pretty stained. Bins big enough to put the dye and the hot water you will have to put in, I got mine at 99 cent store. Just follow the directions on the bottle, it’s pretty easy to follow. Pick as many colors as you’d like and if you don’t need a lot they had these small boxed ones that are one time use. I bought a few colors like that.

Pick out whatever you want to dye and set up your station, we did this outside because it will make a mess, if you choose to do this indoors make sure you cover the table you are using. And place your rubber bands on your tee however you like. My mom’s trick was don’t make the rubber bands so neat because you want that funky shape. My son did his by scrunching his shirt up and squirting the dye where he wanted it. We all kind of did different ways. They all came out different so that was cool and we just had fun with it. I think the more imperfect the better it looks. These were the finished products! My advice watch some youtube videos just to get an idea of what you do.

Hello friends! How are you all doing?! I’m over here just trying to keep it together. I’m feeling so emotional about Breaker graduating from pre-school. I think because I know he’s my last so it’s hard to let him grow up, insert crying emoji! And my David will be a sophomore, Crying! I will be a hot mess when he graduates. I know I’ll probably even cry at my nephews. It’s just hard to see them get so big.

Well enough of that. I wanted to share a trend that I’m totally loving right now. It’s the tie the trend. I think it’s going to be so fun for summer, I would say spring but in LA we haven’t had spring weather, LOL. But a very cute pop of color for summer outfits, especially on vacay, on the beach or just a fun way to brighten up your outfit. I know some are a little extreme. But I’ve rounded up a few that I think are age appropriate for me and still look chic!

I’m loving all the tie dye from Zara, seriously Zara is my go to always. My top I’m wearing is from Zara, here is the link!

Here are some others I’ve seen and I would totally rock these as well. I love the 2 from Shopstarlow. She always has great items, button down and kimono! This tee from Windsor is super cute, I’ve seen girls style it as a tee shirt dress with some sneakers. I love these sweatshirt options that the lovely sincerely Jules is wearing. I just love how these girls are wearing the tie dye trends! So fun, chic and a way to spice up the summer!

Hope you ladies liked this post, I love when I get excited over a trend because I can share with all of you. Happy shopping!
