Sizzle this summer in so-simple tie-dyed shorts

Got a plain pair of jorts that just aren’t doing it for you? Well, blogger Leonie of The Signature Bow has just the DIY you need to jazz ‘em up in just an afternoon. Take a peek, give it a try, and Instagram your project!


What you’ll need:

Denim shorts

Rubber gloves

Elastic bands


Plastic bucket

Table salt (optional)


What you’ll do:

1. Put your shorts in water to make them wet before you add any dye.

2. Wring the denim so it's not soaking wet.

3. Tie as many rubber bands around your shorts as you like. It doesn't matter how you do it and how many rubber bands you use. Less rubber = more dye.

4. Put hot water in the bucket and add the dye. On the package it says you should add 500 ml water per package, but I used more water to make sure that most of the denim will be covered.

5. Carefully place the wrapped shorts in the bucket. It's important that you don't forget to put on the rubber gloves (like I did) - unless you enjoy dyeing your fingers as well.
6. Extra: For better results you can add 250 g (about 1 cup) of table salt. Mix it into the water.

7. Flip the shorts every now and then for an even result. If necessary you can put a heavy item on top to push the denim down into the water. I used a glass jar with stones in it.

8. Leave the shorts in the dye for about 30 minutes and thoroughly wash all the extensive dye out under the tap. I used the kitchen sink - not to worry, the dye doesn't stain metals!
9. Once the water is all clear, you can wash the shorts in the wash machine.

10. When ready, put them in the dryer or lay flat to dry. And VOILA... you're done!
