Last summer was the first time I ever tie-dyed anything. Since then, I’ve been having fun finding new household items to tie-dye. My newest favorite is DIY tie-dyed dish towels. How fun are these dish towels?!! They’d make great gifts for a recent graduate or as a cheery wedding shower gift.
You can complete most of this project in an afternoon. You will have to let the dye set overnight and then rinse and wash the towels the next day, but that doesn’t take long.
Tie-Dye Kit (mine is compliments of Tulip) – I like to use the kit because it has everything you’ll need to tie-dye
Cotton Dish Towels – be sure that they’re cotton for best results
Plastic Bags – I use recycled vegetable bags from the grocery store
I used the tie-dye swirl pattern on one towel.
And I used the accordion fold technique on the other dish towel and folded it starting at one corner and ending at the opposite corner. This is my favorite of the two. I love how bright and cheery it is.
