DIY Tie Dye Shirts

Tie dye has been one of the biggest DIY trends this year and we’re obsessed! These DIY tie dye shirts are a great way to spice up your bachelorette tees and take your wedding shirts to the next level! Here’s how to create your own neutral tie dye masterpieces to incorporate into your wedding festivities.

Here’s What We Used:

Making Your Dye:

To start, you need to prepare your dye! First, fill your squeeze bottle halfway with warm water and a teaspoon of salt. Next, add your dye colors (we went for a combo of camel and tan), close it up, and shake. If you are choosing to do more than one color, we suggest labeling your dye bottles so you don’t get them mixed up!

To test the color, take a paper towel and dip it into the dye bottle. Then adjust as necessary until you have the color you want. (Remember the color will look darker than how the final product will turn out).

Prepping Your Tees:

To prepare your tees, you have a few methods to choose from. There’s the classic spiral method, stripe, ombre, and so many others to choose from. We chose the scrunch method to fold our shirts but you can choose whatever technique you like best! Each t-shirt pattern will come out differently depending on what folding method you choose so this is your time to experiment and have fun with it.

Time To Tie Dye:

Now it’s time to start the tie dying process! Caution, the dye can transfer so we suggest working outside with a plastic bin and gloves on just in case the dye stains anything. First, submerge your shirts in water until they are soaked, and squeeze out as much excess water as you can. Transfer them into a large bin and begin dying away! 

Next, squeeze the dye directly onto the shirts making sure to saturate the exposed areas with color. Each shirt will have varying colors and patterns depending on the technique you use!

When you think you’re almost finished, we suggest opening the shirt to check your progress. If there are any patches or white areas, rescrunch the tee and add more dye as needed!

After, use your tees to soak up the excess dye at the bottom of the tub then transfer to a plastic bag and leave to set for at least 2 hours. (You can leave them longer if you’d like).

Wash & Dry:

After the two hours have passed, you’re set to untie your rubber bands and unfold your shirts to reveal the final pattern. Do not panic if the color is super dark, it will lighten once washed & dried! 

Before putting the tees into the wash, make sure to rinse and wring them out until the water runs clear. This helps get as much excess dye out before putting it in the washing machine. Run your shirts through a normal wash & dry cycle and you are all done! 

Throw on your new shirts and have a cute bachelorette photoshoot with your girls! We can’t wait to see all the different patterns & designs you come up with. Don’t forget to tag us on Instagram if you recreate our DIY tie dye shirts!

Boho Picnic Idea

Picnics are the latest trend for bridal party events and we are HERE FOR IT!  We thought a picnic-style welcome lunch would be an adorable way to incorporate this idea for a Bachelorette Party.  Here’s how we put together this BEAUTIFUL boho picnic setup.

Picnic Location

Enjoy a breath of fresh air by planning your picnic outdoors! We love the aesthetic of a beach picnic but realized it might be harder to execute. The park would’ve been just as fun, but we opted for an intimate backyard setting. Remember to provide shade if you’re setting up in a sunny location.

Picnic Backdrop

The best part about a picnic is the cute photo opportunities! Since we didn’t have a beach or park picnic, our setup needed a better background for photos. We started by draping a sheet against the wall to create our canvas and added accent pieces to make the background pop. Then we used a floral partition and transformed extra pieces of plywood to create decorative arches. We even found a cute pattern canvas that tied everything all together. Get resourceful and use what you have!

Table Décor  

Our favorite part about the picnic was the table! It’s what made the entire setup come to life! We found this adorable outdoor coffee table from Houzz and used it as our base. From there we added round placemats and our Miss to Mrs Wood Sign. Our NEW round signs are the perfect centerpiece for a table set up and we even have a personalized version so you can create your own Custom Wood Sign. We even had a special chair just for the bride-to-be. We’re obsessed with the Rattan Flower Chair from Picnic Imports. Finish it off with some pampas arrangements for an extra boho-chic look.

Party Favors, Gifts & Place Cards

It’s all about the details when it comes to picnics! We opted to use some personalized gifts that served as party favors for each bridesmaid + a place card to assign seating.  On top of the seat cushions, we placed our Personalized Beach Hats and Tie Dye Towels – perfect for the pool/beach. On the table, we used our Personalized Jelly Bags and filled them with Palm Print Tumblers, Dried Palm Fans, Bride Tribe Sunglasses, and Custom Swimsuits. This is also the perfect time to incorporate your bachelorette itinerary. We got ours from A Wild Bloom Printables.

Plan a picnic for your bridal shower or kick off your bachelorette weekend with a brunch! The possibilities are endless, but regardless of the event you choose, this boho picnic setup will be truly memorable!
