Sure it’s almost the end of summer, but not yet! Of course you gotta tie dye before school starts, and it gets cold, all of that jazz.
And what’s the absolute perfect thing to do so? Good question… The average person would typically say “T-Shirts”. But I’m not exactly average, nor normal. So my best answer is “Lead Ropes!”
Agree? Good. Let’s get started.
You will need:
1 white cotton lead rope (you can find one at Rural King or Tractor supply for under $10)
2 or more bottles from any tie dye kit or singles (you can find them at Walmart, Micheal’s, or Hobby Lobby)
2 rubber gloves, one for each hand (optional)
Lastly, lot’s of water.
Step 1: Leave your lead rope tied up from the store, or tie it yourself. Once you tie it up, drench it in water galore. Make sure to get the inside wet as well so the dye can soak in.
Step 2: Fill the dye bottles to the top with water. It can be pretty messy, so you might want to go ahead and put your gloves on.
Step 3: Start tie dying! You can do what ever design you’d like, chances are though, it’s going to turn out completely opposite of what you had in mind.
Step 4: Once you’re done being creative, go ahead and stick it into a plastic bag, and let it soak over night.
Step 5: After you’ve had a long nights sleep, waiting impatiently for it to be done already, put back on those gloves, and pull it out! Once you’ve untied it, examined it, snuggled with it, etc. Throw it in the bathtub, or hose it off before you stain your brand new clothes even more.
Step 6: When you know there’s not a single drop of pony staining dye left, hang it up to dry. (Just make sure it’s not over carpet, chances are your parents will kill you if you missed a few drops.)
Step 7: Catch the pony, then show it off to your jealous friends, jealous ponies, and jealous good for nothing lead ropes!
And you’re done!
