Our kids love to experiment with things like slime and different crafts. It came as no surprise when our son mentioned that he wanted to try making tie-dye sneakers. He is so fun & creative, so I should have seen this one coming when we saw someone wearing them on the ferry last year in NYC. 🙂 (Picture below)
To make these shoes…
- Canvas shoes
- Rubbing alcohol
- A sponge or dropper
To get colors to run together, color across the shoe with several colors, and immediately drip the rubbing alcohol over the color with the dropper or sponge.
The more rubbing alcohol, the more it spreads. Don’t wait long or the marker will dry and will not run.
That’s all there is. You could make any patterns (hearts, circles, etc…) and it will certainly be beautiful!
