DIY Statement Colored Denim with Tie Dye
Make a statement with DIY colored denim! Learn how to create your own colorful jean jacket using the crumple technique with our step-by-step tutorial. It’s easy to create bold tie-dye looks on denim with your favorite Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit!
What you need:
White denim jacket
Protective surface cover
Plastic wrap or bag
Step 1: Prepare materials
Before you get started on this colored denim DIY, gather the materials needed for this project. Prepare your tie dye solutions according to package instructions and prewash your denim jacket.
Step 2: Scrunch fabric
Lay your damp denim jacket flat onto a protected work area and scrunch as desired for the crumple technique. You can make the fabric loosely crumpled or squish it all together for tighter, more defined patterns on your colored denim. Secure the crumpled fabric with rubber bands if desired.
Step 3: Apply dyes
Apply your prepared tie-dye solutions to the denim as desired to create uniquely colored denim! Use gloved hands to work the dyes into the denim, checking to ensure the dyes have penetrated the folds. Flip your scrunched fabric over and apply dye to the backside as well.
Step 4: Wrap and let set
Wrap the colored denim with plastic or place into a sealed plastic bag. Allow the dyes to set for 6-8 hours.
Step 5: Rinse, wash, and reveal!
Rinse, wash in cool water with a little laundry detergent, dry, and reveal your one-of-a-kind colored denim. This statement piece goes great with a bold, colorful outfit!
