The Unicorn Tie-Dye Technique no. 1

Make the shirt wet and lay it on an appropriate surface before pinching the center of the fabric and creating a tube shape as shown in the picture.

Step 2: Unicorn Tie Dye wrap shirt with rubber bands


Wrap rubber bands around the shirt of your choices. The more rubber bands you use, the more colors you have to add and the more abstract your shirt will be. 

Step 3: Unicorn Tie Dye apply dye colors


Pour dye colors to the parts divided by the rubber band.

Step 4: How to Unicorn Tie Dye wrap, let set and rinse

Use a plastic bag to wrap your newly-dyed shirt and let sit for 6 to 8 hours or more, depends on how vibrant you want your shirt to be. After that, rinse and dry as instructed according to the dye kit.

Step 5: How to Unicorn Tie Dye iron on transfer

Use iron to transfer the sparkly Unicorn onto the shirt as desired.

The Rainbow Unicorn Tie-Dye Technique no. 2


So, in case everyone’s wondering, in this no.2 technique, I’m using Tulip One-step Tie-Dye Kit today. I have 2 kits but today I’ll be using the Neon one. I’ll be showing you guys 2 different techniques swirl tie-dye pattern. So, for this, I use the rubber band from the kit.

  • First off, I’m pinching the center of my shirt between the bottom of each sleeve, and turn my hand so that the shirt is folded in a spiral like this.
  • After twisting my shirt, I am wrapping 4 rubber bands around it to hold it in place.
  • Then I am placing my shirt on a rack over a bowl and it’s ready to be covered in ice. It is easier to keep all the ice in place if you use a sieve but if you don’t have one, then the rack also works.
  • I’m basically adding in enough ice onto the shirt where all areas of the shirt are covered. But if you want a more water-colored pastel effect, then you can add even more ice of that.
  • Then I’m taking the bottle of powdered dye and squeezing the powder directly onto the ice in random places. (Instead of a rack and a bowl you can also use a rack placed directly over your sink if you have a black sink. I wouldn’t recommend doing this if you have a light-colored sink though since the dye might stain it.)
  • And for the more abstract water colored tie-dye, I’m just taking my white shirt and crumpling it up on my rack instead of twirling it around.
  • After that, I’m repeating the same process with the ice and powdered dye as before.
  • After applying the powdered dye, you may want to wait for 5 to 8 hours before touching your shirt again. If you want a more pastel shirt with more white space then wait less time, and if you want a more vibrant shirt, then wait more time.
  • Don’t worry if you still have ice on your shirt or constant powdered dye left over after your desired amount of time, you can just throw the ice away or in the sink or whatever and I washed and dried my shirts together according to my kits’ instructions. After washing and drying, we are all set!

This tie-dye technique is my favorite way to tie-dye t-shirts! I think it is the most foolproof way to make t-shirts which come out so pretty!
