DIY tie-dye projects are the newest TikTok craze and many people are hopping on the bandwagon to explore their creativity and make something fun out of old t-shirts and dresses. Some have even gone as far as to tie-dye their sneakers into fun rainbow colors that scream summer.
Even search queries for DIY tie-dye kits on Amazon have surged over the past few weeks, and YouTube creators are making how-to videos on creating your own rainbow-colored masterpieces at home.
Tie-dying isn’t a new concept. In fact, it has been around for decades and is even used as an arts and crafts project in schools. Maybe, this nostalgia factor is what has made this trend a favorite quarantine pastime.
Youtubers are also leaning into this trend to showcase their creativity by sharing how-to videos on fun tie-dye projects to cure your quarantine boredom.
One YouTuber named Lauren Riihimaki has taken the activity to a new level by creating a video in which she tie-dyed every item in her closet. The video became an instant hit, garnering 500,000 views in less than a week.
Other creators are taking cheap sweatsuits from Amazon and transforming them into expensive-looking loungewear pieces that look like they cost hundreds of dollars. And all that is required for this DIY project is some bleach and a tie-dye kit.
TikTok is also at the forefront of this trend, with thousands of short videos showing viewers tips and tricks for achieving mesmerizing tie-dye designs and patterns.
Tie-dye projects aren’t just a quarantine pastime. They are also a great way to upcycle old clothes and make them trendy again. Not only is this approach economical, but also a great way to make something completely new out of your closet without having to go on a shopping trip.
Even Starbucks has embraced this technicolor trend and has given its coffees a colorful makeover. It looks like the tie-dye craze is here to stay, at least while the DIY kits don’t run out of stock.
