Nothing says summer fun like personalized tie dye beach towels! Perfect for the pool or a beach outing, kids will love creating these colorful towels and will be so excited to use them.
We’ve partnered with Tulip Tye Dye for this fun project. Tie dye your summer with tons of creative and colorful projects that are perfect for kids.
Personalized Tie Dye Beach Towels
Here’s what you need to make personalized tie dye beach towels:
- Tulip One-Step Spray Dye Kit 7-Pack
- White terry cloth beach towel
- Duct tape
- Disposable table cloth
We used the Tulip One-Step Spray Dye Kit for this project. I love how kid-friendly it is! You just spray right where you want the color to appear. The kit has everything you need for tie dye projects, including gloves and rubber bands.
Cover your work surface with the disposable table cloth. This makes clean-up so easy!
Lay your towel out and use the duct tape to write your child’s name across the front.
Now comes the fun part! Put on your gloves and start spraying the colors onto the towel. We wanted a rainbow look for our towel, so we started in one corner and moved from color to color. We sprayed pretty lightly so that it would have more of an ombre look.
Allow to air dry.
The colors didn’t bleed through the towel, so we turned it over and repeated the colors on the back.
Once both sides are dry, remove the tape and rinse the towel in cold water. Some of the color will run onto the white letters — that’s ok! It will still be much lighter than the rest of the towel and it looks really cool!
Wash separately in a large load of hottest water suitable for fabric and a small amount of laundry soap. Dry separately. Wash and dry separately for the first few washes.
We had so much fun making this personalized tie dye beach towel over at our Quirky Momma Facebook page! We even got the kids involved.
