Sharpie Tie Dye T-shirt

I love having my little man try new arts and crafts projects, but sometimes I just can't or don't want to do something that will be too messy. So today we made a tie dye t-shirt for him using sharpies, rubbing alcohol, plastic cups and rubber bands, well, in my case we used my hair elastic because we didn't have any rubber bands... Improvisation is the key here. LOL

You just have to put rubber band around the cup to make the t-shirt stretch out good and it will also prevent it from bleeding.  Make dot circles with the colors of your choice.

The put 10-15 drops of rubbing alcohol over your design and wait for the magic to happen!

I ironed the t-shirt afterwards to lock in the colors and here is the final look:
