DIY Over-sized Tie Dye Crew neck Sweatshirt

Hey cupcakes! Today I will be teaching how to make your very own over-sized tie dye crew neck sweatshirt!!!! Over-sized sweatshirts are cute, trendy, and casual, and can be rocked with a pair of leggings or some skinny jeans. Tie dying is super duper easy, and I have done so much tie dying this summer :) You can dye your sweatshirt your favorite colors, the colors of your favorite sports team or college, or rainbow for a fun hippie look! Adding a cute burst of color with some tie dye makes this crew neck the perfect summer staple! Let's get started!!!!! :)

What You Need
- Crew neck sweatshirt in a size bigger than normal (I used an old gray sweatshirt from my dad!)
- A tie dye kit
- Water 
- Plastic wrap
- Rubber gloves (might come in kit)

Directions
1. Place your sweatshirt on a flat surface outside (make sure you put down newspaper so the ground doesn't get dyed!)

2. Wearing gloves, fill up the dye containers with water and shake up to disperse the dye

3. Dye the sweatshirt by splatter painting it!!!!!! (If you want a certain design you can go online to look up other tie dye tutorials) I used purple and light blue dye and it turned out super cute! :)
4. Flip the sweatshirt over and dye that side too :P

5. Wrap the sweatshirt in plastic wrap and let sit according to the directions of the tie dye kit... Usually this is about 6-8 hours!

6. After the time is up, unwrap the plastic and wash out the extra dye <3

7. Wash on the hottest setting BY ITSELF, so the dye doesn't ruin other clothes. After this first washing the dye will not run :)

8. Let dry and Ta-da! Your over-sized sweatshirt is finished and ready to rock!
