4. Tie-Dye with Elmer’s Gel Glue

Tie-Dye with Elmer’s Gel Glue

This is a really creative idea that is pretty simple, and one I can’t wait to try! The Elmer’s gel glue leaves a watermark effect on your shirt after you wash it, it’s pretty neat to watch what you created come to life through the tie-dye colors.

The first step is to design with the gel glue on a blank canvas; a white t-shirt, pillow case, whatever you’d like to use, and let the glue dry for 24 hours. Then go about tie-dying your shirt. Rinse the shirt in cold water and rub off the glue, then run the shirt through the cold cycle in your washer, let dry and you have your very own, magical tie-dye shirt! Your kids will be amazed by the watermark effect the gel glue leaves!
