Tie Dyed Bedding!

Are you looking for a fun way to express yourself, and get some new bedding at the same time? Well, look no further! In just a couple of hours you can create a whole new look in your bedroom with very minimal investment.

We used:
  • twin sized 100% cotton duvet set from Target
  • Tulip tie dye kit - Aqua Chic
  • plastic tablecovers (you can use any plastic cover to protect your work surface)

Step 1: Get your fabric wet - wring out excess water so it is damp. The water will help the dye penetrate the fabric.

Step 2: Prep your work area. I took a roll of plastic tablecover that we had from a birthday party at our house and cut out 6 foot long pieces. Then we placed them outside on a grassy area we were going to work on.

Step 3: Figure out what design you want - Imara only wanted a crinkled water kind of effect so she just scrunched up the fabric after she laid it out on the plastic.

Step 4: Salt and Dye!! Sprinkle rock salt (included in kit) over fabric. This will help create a watery effect. We filled the dye bottles with water and shook them around to mix the water and dye. The kit came with three colors - we used the spray nozzles that came in the kit on two of the colors and just squirted the third one on.

Step 5: Wrap the fabric up in plastic for about 4 hours.

Step 6: After four hours, rinse out the fabric until the water runs clear. Wash and dry.

ALL DONE! We love the way it turned out, what do you think?
