DIY Dyed Shorts



I have seen a few blog posts recently which have showcased a pair DIY dyed shorts that are three different colors all fading into each other. I decided that this was such a simple and fun DIY and after I found some white pants and different coloured dye I set to work.

What you need:
White shorts, capris/pants

Clothing dye
Spray bottles



First start by cutting you shorts, pants or capris into the length you want. I used a cheap pair of white pants that I found at a local thrift store. 
After you get them to the length you want, soak the shorts thoroughly in water. Fill your spray bottles up with water and pour the dye into the spray bottles. 
With the dye I bought I only used about 1/4 of the the package in the spray bottle so the dye wasn't too dark. 


 I first started with the yellow and spray about 3 inches from the top down. 


I then did the pink,



And finished with the blue. I decided I wanted my shorts to look a bit faded so I only left the dye on for about 15 minutes and then put them through the washer (by themselves!) and then the dryer.





I loved the way these shorts turned out. It was so much fun to use the spray bottles to dye the shorts and I cannot wait to try again. There are so many different colors and so many possibilities and different things you can do with a white short.

  14. Oh my God, I am obsessed with these! I especially love the multi-colored dip-dye shorts, I saw a really cute studded pair from Urban Outfitters but it was very overpriced for what it is! I will definitely be trying out these one day! :) Thanks for sharing with everyone! Love how you styled them too! :) I am now a new follower of your blog, looking forward to seeing your upcoming blog posts! =)
