Tie-dyed emoji socks


Looking for a fun summer project to do with the kids? How about one-of-a-kind tie-dyed emoji socks? The kids are going to love this!


This is what you’ll need:
  • White cotton socks
  • Tie-dye kit
  • Joy iron-on embroidered emojis

I tried three different ways to dye my socks. First I just squirted dye directly onto the socks (red/blue pair). Next, I rubber-banded two socks together (yellowish pair). Then I tried rubber-banding each socks separately (purplish pair).


I think I like the socks on the left, rubber-banded together, the best.

To dye the socks:
  1.  Add water to the pre-measured squirt bottles
  2.  Rubber-band the socks and apply dye
  3.  Let set for 6-8 hours, then rinse - waiting is the hardest part!
  4.  Make sure to wear gloves to prevent staining your skin
  5.  Wash and dry your new socks, then iron an emoji to the outer side of each sock. Cool!
