DIY Cactus Tie-Dye Shirt w/ method

Monday, November 7, 2016

As creators, we know that the true magic happens when we get lost doing what we love, but that's also when things can start to get messy and we start to hold back! Well what if there was a way we could give 100% into our projects and worry about the mess later? You interested?

Today I've partnered up with method to share how to #fearnomess when it comes to bold projects! I've always been a big fan of tie-dye but avoided doing it because I know how messy it can get. Well I've decided to fear no more and plunge right into a DIY that I've been wanting to do for a while! Keep scrolling to see how I created my own cactus tie-dye tee, along with how I used method 4X Laundry Detergent to make the process a breeze! :)

Here are the essentials that I used to make my tie-dye tee. I bought a simple tie-dye kit from my local craft store that had all the necessary items I needed (which was super convenient)!

I decided to dye a few different tops to see which design I liked the best. I ended up using the shirt with the Stripes/Pleats technique (the only long one in the picture) for my final project, but I also tried out the Swirl and another variation of the Stripes technique on a couple other shirts. After mixing up the pre-measured bottles, I went to town with tie-dying!

After wrapping up the shirts in plastic wrap and letting them sit for 6 hours, it was time to rinse out as much of the dye that I could. After the water ran mostly clean, I put my tees into the washer and added a cap of method 4X Laundry Detergent to ensure that my shirts would come out nice and clean! After a wash and dry cycle, I took my acrylic paint and carefully drew on a few cute cacti plants and finished it off with a punny line. ;)

Aaaaand voila! Here is the finished product! It came out looking exactly how I wanted to and thanks to method, my shirt smells and feels good AND I don't have to worry about excess dye rubbing off because I know it's CLEAN.

I ended up adding a little elephant design to the spiral shirt because I loved it so much too!

I had the freedom to live boldly because I knew I had method on my side to clean up my mess! All method products are biodegradable, vegan and gluten free. And if you need any more reason to love the brand, method is animal-friendly, which means they do absolutely no animal testing and have no animal bi-product.

Hey there.
Remember me?
My name is Ariel if you forgot...

But for real, welcome BACK to my blog!

I apologize for the month of radio silence on here but when you're juggling a bunch of priorities in life, one of them is bound to eventually fall, roll under under the couch, and get covered in a dust for a bit. And unfortunately, that priority ended up being my blog. But after some groveling and begging for forgiveness, Auteur Ariel and I have finally made amends and we are BACK IN BUSINESS baby!

With long breaks come a looooot of catching up to do. I have about 4-5 outfits still to post that feature my old hair and previous seasons so please bear with me as we take a visit to the past for a bit! :)

Today's post is from our trip back home to Hawaii for my brother's wedding (back in June, hehe)! During our short visit I was able to squeeze in a stop at one of my favorite beaches on the island. It's a bit of a walk to get to and most people/tourists don't know about it so it's perfect for a day of peace and relaxation. When you're from a vacation destination, it's almost impossible to go to a beach that isn't overrun by tourists so I always tend to spend my time in the lesser known areas of Hawaii. It's one of the perks of being able to call this island my home.

If you're going on vacation somewhere warm or you just live in a forever summer climate, make sure you check out Beverly Swimwear and SwimZip! Beverly Swimwear has custom-made swimmies that are so cute and flattering to the body, and SwimZip has awesome roundie towels that are necessary for the beach! Just because it's nearing the cold seasons, doesn't mean the beach partying needs to stop. ;)

Okay guys, I PROMISE this time I'm sticking to posting AT LEAST twice a week.
I said it.
Now you can hold me to it.

Btw, I'm always posting on my Snapchat and Instagram so if you want to stay updated with my life make sure you follow me there!

As always guys, keep it classy.
