What is there to like about Tie Dye? Everything! It’s colourful and bright. It’s fun to work with. Best of all, there is so much you can do with it! It’s all about broadening your imagination & then, there are no limits to the number of things you can make. I’m not kidding when I say, no limits. When I went looking around on Pinterest, I came across incredible ideas & ways to get this effect. So, if you think it’s just for t-shirts, you’re in for an amazing surprise. Because creators around the world, have imagined & made so much more of it. Check out our fantastically fantastic favourites below!
Sidenote: This is going to be a really long post. So, thanks for bearing with me 🙂
Of course, I would start a roundup with food. These marshmallows by Studio DIY have me drooling, every single time I look at them.
A Beautiful Mess always comes up with such unique ideas & their Tie Dye Soap, definitely meets that criteria perfectly.
I love how Brittany Goldwyn uses clay to make these coasters. The colours look beautiful.
I’ve seen dozens of videos and tutorials on making scarves. But, The Thinking Closet’s video on how to make this scarf is one of my favorites.
Speaking of accessories, you should see how Alyssa & Carla used an indigo dye to make these ombre shoelaces. I tried out their technique and am thrilled with the end result.
Also related to footwear, are these stunning Rainbow Shoes by A Pumpkin & A Princess. I liked these ones especially, because of the finish.
How can you have shoes and no socks? Well you can. But, then you would miss out on these cute socks by eHow.
Let’s come back to food. Handmade Charlotte shared this tutorial on how to make a peace cake and I can’t think of anyone, who wouldn’t want it.
If you don’t think you could control yourself around cake (which is completely natural. Because one minute you’re eating a slice. And the next, you’ve eaten the whole thing) , you should cake pops by Brit + Co.
Brit + Co, also shared their technique on ice-dying and the results are phenomenal. The texture looks so different and pretty!
This isn’t a tutorial, but I just love looking at the type of effects you can get for an entire wall. Homedit shared this link with lots of styles, to try.
We’ve dabbled with techniques a lot, but another way of getting the effect is by using alcohol sprays and sharpies. Here’s how you can do that.
A great idea that you can make subtle or sharp, is to have clamp curtains. And, The White Buffalo Styling Co. made a great tutorial on how to make them at home.
You should see how Design Love Fest made these sheets. I like how they aren’t over-powering. So , you would actually feel comfortable using them everyday. While, adding colour to your room.
From colour in your bedroom, to colour on your dining table. The Crafted Life, is one of my favorite sites of all time and these Bleach Dyed Napkins are just one example of what you can expect on the blog.
I had shaded towels as a kid. So, when I saw this tutorial by Mom Endeavors, I was really excited. Because I can make one now, using the steps.
Do you love cookies? I love cookies. So, my excitement was through the roof when I saw this recipe by Baked Bree.
Homemade Ginger made these Sprayed Bags, and I think the design is lovely for daily use bags.
Sometimes, you can get colours that are way too sharp. In those cases, you had best try Tidbits method of doing a watercolour effect, like they’ve done on these pillows.
If cupcakes are your choice of dessert, I really recommend this cupcake and cake recipe by Sally’s Baking Addiction. The colours mesh, but manage to look distinct, which is great!
We’ve covered so many accessories. But, what about nails? Luckily, Chalkboard Nails has got it covered with their tutorial. I would love to do nail art this good and not ruin it.
Last, and definitely the one that made me jump with joy are these incredible waffles by She Knows. I genuinely had no idea you could do this at home and it looks epic!
