FBLMNDS D.I.Y : MEMORIAL DAY INSPIRED...4TH OF JULY READY

FBLMNDS here with yet another DYE IT YOURSELF tutorial! Being so inspired by all of the Memorial Day festivities we decided to create a BBQ ready piece that will make you the talk of the party come the 4th of July! A simple, fun D.I.Y so that you can flaunt your red, white and blue!



What you will need:

1. White T-shirt
2. RIT Dye (Navy blue and Scarlet used here)
3. Rubber Bands
4. Gloves
5. Squirt bottles (old ketchup bottles will do the trick!)




We are going to do a "radial" Tie Dye. So you need to take your rubber bands and start pinching the fabric together in a circle and band it up. I like to to do 3 rubber bands per circle. This gives it a larger and more detailed radial aspect. Fantastic! Now....




Put your gloves on an add your powdered RIT dyes to your squirt bottles. Add HOT water to the powder and give it a gentle shake to mix it up! (Don't mind my destroyed towel in this pic! I'm a dye-a-holic so almost every towel, tarp or sheet I own has RIT dye on it!)



Start by spraying on whatever color you want to be the ground color of the shirt (in this case I made mine red). After that, take the squirt bottle that has your second color (navy blue) and completely saturate the sections that you previously banded up!!!


BAM! Once you remove your rubber bands you will be left with a glorious backyard BBQ ready masterpiece! Like I've said in our previous D.I.Y's...LET IT SIT!!! Do not rinse our your tee until the dye's have a had a hot second to soak in! Once you give them a breather...rinse thoroughly and dry.

What I love so much about this project is that when someone asks you..."I love your shirt! Where on earth did you get it?"

You can respond with..."I MADE IT"

Until next time!
