Holiday Colors Tie-Dye Tee

Your kids can celebrate Christmas in style when they wear the Holiday Colors Tie-Dye Tee. This tie-dye project from I Love to Create was designed by Pattie Donham-Wilkinson and created by Lauri Eaton. It is a great way to be both casual and festive during the Christmas holiday. Your kids can wear these shirts to school in the days leading up to Christmas, or they can wear the shirts to bed and open presents in them on Christmas morning. The tie-dye instructions are easy to follow, and the craft is so much fun. Add tie-dye to your kids' Christmas apparel with this great craft.

Can crafts get any funner than this one? My sister-in-law loves anything tie-dye so this T-shirt will be perfect for her Christmas gift this year. A box of chocolates or some homemade candy treats will finish off her gift and get me on to the next couple dozen I need to come up with this year.

Is there a picture of how the rubber bands are applied?
