Five Upcycled Tie-Dye Projects That aren’t Tacky

4. Tie-Dyed Party Decorations

If you can’t get wild and crazy when you’re decorating for a party, then I don’t know when you can get wild and crazy. Tie-dyed fabric party decorations, such as garlands, streamers, tablecloths, or this tie-dyed bunting from Family Fun, are eco-friendly since you can re-use them every year. They may not fit every year’s changing birthday party theme, but spend one afternoon tie-dying red and blue buntings for Memorial Day and Independence Day, and red and green garlands for Christmas, and you’re set forever.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.
