Sharpie Tie Dye T-Shirts

Sharpie Tie Dyes!

Sharpie Tie Dyes are a fun and easy alternative to traditional, messy, tie dyeing techniques. You probably have all of the materials you need already at home!


  • 100% cotton t-shirt
  • Sharpie Markers
  • A rubber band
  • A paper plate
  • An eye dropper
  • Rubbing alcohol


  1. Place a round paper plate in between the t-shirt layers and place a rubber band around the plate, drawing the material tight.
  2. Using bright colors draw a circular design. Leave lots of white space and avoid dark colors such as brown and black. Use dark purples, greens and blues sparingly.
  3. With an eye dropper, strategically drop droplets of Rubbing Alcohol so that the Sharpie colors start to bleed. Do not over saturate.
  4. When you are finished bleeding your design, use a hair dryer to dry the rubbing alcohol. When dry, remove the paper plate.
  5. Use a hot iron to set the Sharpie ink.
