DIY Unif tie-dye top

This tee on Unif and was retailing for £45 which seemed quite expensive, so I looked into doing it myself. Tie-dying is an easy and cheap way to give once dull or plain clothes a new lease of life.

You just need a plain white shirt and some tie-dye which you can find online. There are loads of YouTube how-to videos which show you different methods of tie-dying that can create different patterns, from hearts, to circles, to swirls.

Instead of buying brand new clothes all the time, it’s good to try and re-purpose old things you have first. Obviously it is better for the environment and saves money too!

No two tie-dye creations are the same too which is cool – the possibilities are endless.

Since COVID-19 and lockdown in the UK, there is a huge importance in having hobbies that are creative and mean that we aren’t all consistently glued to screens. Research has shown that taking this creative time away from technology helps to reduce anxiety and stress.
