Plain white T-shirts can be transformed into more colorful attire by tie-dying them into beautiful rainbow shades. There are many different ways to tie-dye shirts, including tying the shirts with rubber bands and submerging them into a dye bath, squeezing fabric dye onto scrunched-up shirts or twisting the shirts into a spiral and spraying on fabric dye. You can use the spray tie-dye method by following a few necessary guidelines.

Video of the Day

Fill a bucket with water.

Put a T-shirt into the water, and allow it to soak there until it is saturated.

Squeeze out the excess water, and lay the shirt flat.

Pinch the middle of the shirt, and twist the entire shirt up into a spiral.

Fill spray bottles with liquid fabric dye. Use as many different spray bottles as you want colors.

Spray the dye onto the wet shirt, covering the area with the different colors in the pattern that you prefer.

Flip the shirt over, making sure to maintain the spiral, and spray the other side of the shirt.

Allow the shirt to sit for five minutes.

Flatten out the shirt in a sunny location until it dries.

Wash and dry the shirt by itself before wearing it.
