DIY Mickey Mouse Tie-Dye Shirts
Disney Resorts have lots of activities that you can participate in during your stay in addition to visiting the parks. Most activities are free, and some include a fee (which you are made aware of ahead of time). During our stay at the Grand Floridian, we decided to do the tie-dye shirts by the pool.
It was $18.11 to do the shirt. I’ll be honest- I thought they were giving me adult and kid prices; $18 for adults, $11 for kids- they weren’t that’s the price per person regardless of age. I had already said yes when they gave me the full total and while I could have changed my mind I didn’t. It was fun, so I don’t have any complaints. We would have winded up spending it one way or another so a shirt they get to wear and remember making at Disney was worth it.
Lucky you though, I’m sharing how we did it in case you want to have some Disney DIY fun at home!
Make Your Own Mickey Tie Dye Shirt!
Step 1: Take white shirt and place Mickey head template on the inside.
Step 2: Trace with chalk
Step 3: With rubber bands, pinch up the section of one ear and wrap the rubber band around it. Repeat this step with the other ear and then the face portion of Mickey.
Step 4: Wrap rubber bands down the shirt
Step 5: Get some gloves and dye in squirt bottles
Step 6: Pick one color to do Mickeys ears and head with. This is important because otherwise, they will look like three circles and not Mickey Mouse.
Step 6: Add colors to the other sections of your shirt. Avoid using the Mickey colors directly around that section. You can use them down a section or two.
Step 7: Wrap the shirt in plastic wrap tightly and let it sit a minimum of 24hrs and a maximum of 3 days. The longer it sits, the brighter the colors will be but more than 3 days and the colors will start to bleed together.
There you go… Super Cute Mickey Tie Dye Shirts!
