DIY: Sharpie Tie Dye

So I am really into 70's stuff! I'm always looking at my parents yearbooks and seeing how everything was 40 years ago! The Earthbound store is probably one of my favorite stores to find hippie type stuff! or thrifting!! So the other day I realized my only tie dye shirt was fading its colors (it was almost completely white! Yikes!) So I decided I would make a new tie dye shirt! But this time instead of dye I used Sharpies!! Here's how to do it!

What you need:

1. Place hard surface underneath white shirt to prevent bleeding

2.Use sharpies to create circular patterns on shirt

3. Once you have your desired design Drop alcohol onto circles

4. Wait for alcohol to completely dry then enjoy!(two different results shown below depending on how much alcohol you put on.)
