A few years ago, I sewed up our own Color Run Gang outfits:
This year I wanted to do something, but a quick and easy something. We just tie dyed socks, and they’re awesome! Can’t wait to wear them in this year’s Color Run. And I’ve got a tutorial for you!
It’s something that anyone can tackle!
First off, you’ll need socks and a tie dye kit:
Prewash the socks – that’ll help the color soak in better. Then wrap your rubberbands around in different spots, etc, according to package directions. Now you’re ready to dye, but first get your socks wet. They will pull in the color a lot better if they are wet (trust me, I tried dry socks first and it didn’t go well).
It’s also helpful to raise them up a little – like on a cookie sheet – so that they don’t sit and soak in color in the wrong places. Then start with one color:
And then add more and color until you’re happy with it:
This kiddo picked the right day to stay home from school sick – she got to help with the fun:
Then they’ll need to sit in a bag for about 6 hours or longer:
Then rinse, wash, and enjoy!!
