Try Out This Cool Way to Tie-Dye T-Shirts

Use frozen dye to design your own tie-dye T-shirt.

Nothing screams summertime and fun camp days to us quite like tie-dyeing T-shirts, but we’re ready for a new take on the multi-colored tops. Enter Kid Made Modern’s galaxy-like T-shirt, which uses frozen cubes of dye that have been smashed up with a hammer. So prepare your materials and head outside for an afternoon of custom T-shirt making fun!

You will need:

  • Dye
  • Ice cube trays
  • Plastic sandwich bags
  • Hammer
  • Cloth for hammering
  • Washed T-shirt 

Step 1: Prepare dye colors and freeze them in ice cube trays. Place the frozen cubes in plastic bags.

Step 1

Step 2: Place the cloth on top of the bag and lightly break the cubes apart with the hammer. 

Step 2

Step 3: This part can get messy so best to do this outside. Sprinkle the frozen dye onto the T-shirt as you like.

Step 3

Step 4: Continue sprinkling the frozen dye until your design is complete.

Step 4

Step 5: Watch the dye diffuse and blend and then shake the dye off when you feel the design is finished. Rinse and “set” per the dye instructions on the box.
