September 21st is International Peace Day and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than by creating some super cute tie-dye tops. For years tie dye clothing has been used to express a free-spirited nature filled with love and positive vibes! And well, if you’ve ever owned a super cool tie-dye top, you know all about the happy feeling it brings to your day.
I decided to grab a few of my favorite JustFab tops and transform these already amazing pieces into something extra special. Here are the style names I used:
Additional Supplies (if you want to get extra crafty use these tools to create fun folds & shapes):
Spiral Tie Dye: Lay the fabric flat. Pinch the fabric in the middle and twist the material in a circular motion. Stop once all of the material is completely wrapped in a circle. Secure the shape with three rubber bands diagonally from one another.
Pole Wrapping: Simply wrap your material around the pole & add a lot of rubber bands up and down the pole to tighten the fabric.
Kumo Wrap: For this design, divide several small sections. Start grabbing one section at a time and add one rubber band towards the middle, move slightly higher with the second rubber band and for the last section leave a pinch of fabric and secure tightly with a rubber band.
For the spiral top start by adding dye to each individual section (front and back). If leakage happens between rubber bands, don’t worry you will still have a beautiful design! For this design I chose pink, purple and teal as my main colors.
Remember to match up the same colors in the front and back of the shirt. Once covered with dye, wrap the material in plastic and secure with rubber bands.
Start by coating each section with dye. For this piece I decided to stick to 1 color, but feel free to add multiple dyes if you wish. Once completely coated, cover with plastic wrap and secure with rubber bands.
Celebrating International Peace Day feels just right with this psychedelic patterned top!
Although I only used one color on this top, some sections of the top absorbed more teal dye than others creating a super fun pattern.
For this beauty – I simply coated it completely in pink dye and wrapped it up in plastic wrap. The results, amazing!
