Ghost costumes are an enduring favorite during Halloween, but the traditional white bedsheet ensemble is overdue for a trendy update. Allow Oh Yay Studio to lead the way in constructing a captivating and glow-in-the-dark ghost costume with the Tulip Glow in the Dark Tie-Dye Kit. Prepare for a Halloween appearance that is not only memorable but also radiates an enchanting luminescence!
Materials You'll Need:
- Tulip One-Step Glow in the Dark Tie-Dye Kit
- Flat kid’s bedsheet (100% cotton)
Step 1: Prep Your Sheet
Firstly, ensure to prewash and thoroughly dry your kid's cotton bedsheet. Decide on the folding method; here, we follow Oh Yay Studio’s accordion tie-dye technique.
Step 2: Mix the Tie-Dye Solutions
Adhering to the package directions, prepare the tie-dye solutions. Fill each bottle up to the marked “Water Fill” line, then securely reattach the nozzle and cap. Shake each bottle energetically for at least a minute. Remove the cap again, add the Glow Mixer up to the “Mixer Fill” line, replace the nozzle and cap, and shake for an additional minute.
Step 3: Application
With gloves on, meticulously apply your chosen Glow Tie-Dye color to every section of the folded bedsheet, ensuring it seeps into all the nooks and crannies. While applying, continuously work the solution into the fabric and shake the bottle periodically for even glow pigment distribution. Ensure the bedsheet is dry before application for optimal results.
Step 4: Drying & Washing
After the application, unfold the bedsheet and lay it flat to air-dry for 24 hours, allowing the dye to set in. For even drying, flip the sheet midway through the drying process. Upon drying, wash it with cold water and mild detergent on a delicate setting, then air-dry.
Step 5: Eye Holes Creation
Have your child wear the sheet, marking the fabric where their eyes align. Cut out the eye holes carefully, and voila, your glowing ghost costume is ready to steal the show! Charge the glow pigments by exposing the costume to sunlight for 30-60 seconds or use a flashlight for night-time recharging.
