Like most people, not every diy I do is a new idea. Sometimes, I see it on pinterest and just saw I want to do that. Such was the case with my dip dyed shoes.
These shoes were based on this popular Pinterest pin, which originates at DIY Selfies.
After seeing and falling in love with the pin, my sister and I decided to try it out. I made pink ones and she went for black one. We used RIT dye, a rag, vaseline and $8 for cheap white shoes at Kmart.
We found it best to go easy on the vaseline, because it can be difficult to get off later. The rest was pretty straight forward, dip and then use the rag to gently pull the dye up the sides of the shoe in an ombre effect. Dipping the rag in water can help to spread the dye around.
Then you hang them out to dry.
As a note, as my sister will show you, this can get messy. So if you care about your hands look like for the next week, you should wear gloves.
