Easy Tie Dyed Bandannas
Red, White and Blue Tie Dye Bandannas are an easy and fun project to make to show off your patriotic spirit this Memorial Day or to wear while watching the fireworks on the Fourth of July.
My daughter and I love to do craft projects together. One craft we haven’t done before is Tie Dyeing. So, we purchased a tie dye color kit, a few plain white bandannas and went outside to have some fun.
Where do you go when you wanna get ideas on making a new project? Pinterest of course! We did find a lot of fabric dying techniques on Pinterest but thought it would be more fun and memorable to just wrap the bandannas with rubber bands to randomly make our own unique patterns.
Of course, while we are in our backyard, enjoying the great weather, we also enjoyed taking a little break to Share an Ice Cold Coke ™ together. My daughter thought it was really neat that I found a Share A Coke 20oz Bottle at Target with her Daddy’s name on it. She is quite the Daddy’s girl too.
To make the Tie Dyed Bandannas, we mixed the dye in bottles per the kit instructions then squeezed the dye randomly in between the sections.
After we were happy with the patterns, we wrapped the bandannas in plastic wrap and let them sit for a while.
After a few hours of dye soaking, we cut off the rubber bands, rinsed them in water and … Voila! Pretty Tie Dyed Bandannas!
Not only were these Tie Dyed Bandannas easy to make, they also created a memorable experience for my daughter and me. Now she can check Tie Dye off her summer bucket list.
