Scrunch it up and dye it. It's that simple, really, and the results are great!

Step 3: Spoon about 2 tsp. of each color dye into 2 separate cups, add a small amount of water to make a paste, then add about 1 cup of water to each cup making sure the dye is thoroughly dissolved.

Paste up two colors

Step 4: With a container of dye in each hand slowly pour equal amounts of dye down the opposite sides of the cup, filling cup almost to top.

Pour dyes into each side

Step 5: Without disturbing the folds of the shirt, gently push in a up and down motion to get the dye distributed throughout the shirt.

Step 6: Place another cup into the "cup of shirt" and weigh it down to keep the shirt scrunched.
