DIY Tye Dye Valentines Kitchen Tea Towels // Come craft with me!

Valentines Day is almost here and I needed some Valentines Towels. So I decided to make them! Who doesn't love a good craft? These are really easy to make and can be a great family craft. 

Fun fact: According to Wikipedia, Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentineis celebrated annually on February 14. It originated as a Christian feast day honoring one or two early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine and, through later folk traditions, has become a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and love in many regions of the world.

Supplies needed:

-Tea Towels
-Dye in all the colors that you want to use
-Rubber bands
-Pyrex glass pans

Step 1: Get all your supplies together. I already had most of my supplies on hand, so all I had to buy was the tea towels. 

Step 2: Put rubber bands around the tea towels. There are so many ways you can do this to create different designs. I did mine a few different ways. 

Step 3: Wet you towels until the are soaked through. Ring out any excess water. You want them wet but not soaking. 

Step 4: Time to Dye! I mixed my dyes into small bottles for easy use. Squirt the dye in all the spots that you want. You could have a pattern or make it random. Do it how ever you want! There is no wrong way to do this. 

Step 5: Once you are done adding the dyes, cover and set aside. I normally let them sit for at least 12 hours. 

Step 6: Time to rinse. I always rinse in cold water. I place a cookie cooling sheet in my sink so the tea towel doesn't sit directly in the sink. I didn't use gloves to rise, but if you are going to be moving with your hands, you might want to. I rise and turn over and rise more until there is no color rinsing from it any more. Remove the rubber band and set aside. 

Step 7: Time to wash! When I wash these, I wash with 1 dark towel I find that they wash and dry better with a large heavy towel. I was on cold with a normal amount of detergent. Dry on low too. 

Now it's time to enjoy your tea towels! I use mine all year long.
