D.I.Y| Two Tone Dyed & Ripped Denim Shorts

Yesterday I tried a DIY project that came out great! I got the idea from The Fashion Citizens on YouTube. It's purple and turquoise dyed denim, a great look for spring and summer. Later, I will try to do pretty pastel colors and cropped tye dye t-shirts. Cute looks that I've seen floating around.

P.s. Waiting for you guys to "like" the fan page! Located at the top of this post! ; ) 

What I did:

  • I bought a pair of denim shorts from the thrift store.
  • I cut and ripped them to my liking.
  • Bought some clothing dye from Wal-mart for $2.
  • Got a bucket, salt, scissors, and boiled some water.
  • Mixed the salt and dye in the hot water.
  • Placed the bottom half of the shorts in the purple dye. Let sit for 3 minutes.
  • Placed the top half of the shorts in the turquoise dye and let that sit for 3 minutes.
  • Rinsed the shorts off with cold water and placed them in the dryer to dry and so that my rips can fray.
That's it!
