Who says dyeing projects are not cool? Nuh-uh, they totally are. Dye projects will assure that nobody else will have the same pattern or design as yours. You can dye just about anything made of fabric and even those that are not. The possibilities are endless.

1. Rainbow Shorts

You’ll need white shorts for this project or lighter colored ones so the colors will pop out. You can repurpose your old shorts or cut off your old jeans, or if you don’t mind, you can also get new ones as well. And you don’t need to have all the colors of the rainbow to dye the shorts. 4-5 colors will do.

2. Shirts Dyed with Sharpies

As the name suggests, you’ll only need a couple of Sharpies and a white tee. You can choose your preferred design but you can also just dye it however way you want. This can be a great project for kids, especially during summer.

3.Colorful Hair for Summer

4. Dyed Beddings

You can choose to dye only the pillows or the sheets or dye all of them. Your bed will have a great new look and the whole room will look even better as well.

5. Ombre Napkins

Dye projects don’t stop in your bedroom. They can be adapted to the kitchen as well. If you are tired of your ordinary table napkins, dye them!

Just be sure to follow the package instructions. And don’t forget the salt.

6. Colored Placemats

Same as the napkins, placemats can have the same treatment. You can dip-dye them to just one color or two. Choose the best ones that will complement your whole table setting.

7. Colored Ceramic Spoon Handle

Yup, not just on fabric but ceramic as well. Ceramic spoons can have a new look by having the handles dip-dyed. And not just handles, you can do the same thing to cups too.
