Tumble Dye Project Ideas + Giveaway

It's the last day of our Tumble Dye week. We hope you love the ideas we shared as much as we do. Have you started imagining the possibilities? We have even MORE to share today!


This artwork was created with a canvas, tumble dye, cream acrylic paint, a brush, a monogram, and yarn.

To make your own, mix Tumble Dye with paint for the perfect match to your room. Use a brush and apply it to your canvas. You need to work fairly quickly because the paint dries fast. After your paint is dry, add the monogram. We wrapped our monogram in custom-colored yarn first (using tumble dye of course!).


We also dyed yarn for this crocheted banner. To make it multi-colored, simply spray the bundled yarn with a few colors and let it dry. After most of the dyed yarn is used, spray it again and let it dry.


Tumble Dye can be used like watercolor. For this book art, first we printed our design on an old book page. Then we accented it by painting with Tumble Dye.


Why settle for plain white when you can have exactly the color you want? Tumble Dye works great for fabric. For these skirts, we dyed a think elastic yellow and lace mint.


To create the ombre look, like our lace-trimmed sheets, use the dip-dye method. Mix Tumble Dye and water in a large bowl, dip one end of sheet in one color and the other side in another color. Let the sheet hang to dry. The colors will blend beautifully as it dries.


Are you excited to give Tumble Dye a try? Enter our giveaway and you could win some of your own! Just leave a comment to enter. We're curious to know how you'd use tumble dye if you won. Remember, each post you leave a comment on this week gives you an additional entry for up to 5. We will announce the winner Monday. Good luck!

My husband and I just bought a house last summer, and I have got to get curtains up in the other bedrooms. Tumble dyed curtains would look fabulous in my toy room!

I've never used that before! I have some old doilies I want to perk up and use for crafting. :)

I would use stencils as masks and spray cardstock for backgrounds for scrapbook layouts. And dye a ton of paper flowers. You can make perfectly matching light, medium, and dark colored flowers. Yeah.

Thanks for the opportunity to win.
