Hello! I hope your Friday is off to a great start! :) I am so happy that today is the last day of school for this week. I’m so ready for this weekend. I love having my kiddos home. :) This past summer break was so much fun. Annnnd our family was so excited to take part in Tie Dye Your Summer with Tulip. Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye is America's Favorite Tie Dye! You can see us having a little bit of tie dying fun {HERE}. My kiddos loved wearing their tie dyed shirts everywhere! Since it’s back to school time I thought it would fun to tie dye some shoes for a unique back to school look! It was so easy & fun. Keep reading to see how I did it. :)

Tulip Dyes are great for projects like these. Their dyes are permanent and color-fast, so they won't fade in the wash! Yay! They are also perfect for multi-color projects, group activities and family fun! Plus it is super simple to do. Tulip makes it easy to make a fashion masterpiece in just one step. You just add water for beautiful & bold colors! Your kiddos will love to help out, & they'll enjoy creating their own fashion pieces.

First you will take out the soles of the shoes, & then set them aside.

Then using the blue painter’s tape ~ I taped around the rubber bottom of the shoe.
Then I put a garbage bag down with some paper towels on top for the shoes to sit on.

Then I followed the directions on the back of the dye bottle to mix the dye. It was easy!

Then I squirted some of the dye on the shoe.
I used my gloved finger to spread it around.

Then I kept adding different colors until the entire shoe was covered.

Then I put my shoes inside a sealed bag. You’ll need to keep them inside the bag for at least 6-8 hours. I ended up keeping mine inside there all night. :) The longer you wait the more vibrant your colors will be. Then take them out, & rinse out any excess dye with water. Let dry, and then your shoes are ready to wear. :) I think these will look so cute for back to school. :)

  1. I use to be into tie dye MANY years ago, back in the 60's. My son was really into it until he passed away, 3 months ago. He was a musician and loved the Greatful Dead band who were from my era and they were into it also! Amazing how things keep coming back! The shoes are really cute.
