Ice Dyed Patriotic Firecracker T-Shirts

These ice dyed patriotic t-shirts are perfect for the Fourth of July and also really fun to create.  They are quick and easy which makes them perfect for the Craft Lightning Patriotic series that I am co-hosting this week with Angie and Carolina!  Craft Lighting features projects within a theme that can be completed in fifteen minutes or less.  I spent a year as a Rit Dye-Signer so am really excited to share this project using Rit Dyes in Red and Blue.

This one is a winner and you only need ice, Gildan cotton t-shirts and Rit powder fabric dye.


  1. Place DRY shirt in the grass.
  2. Scatter ice cubes on shirt.
  3. Sprinkle powder dye over ice.
  4. Spritz lightly with water.
  5. WAIT for ice to melt completely.
  6. Rinse completely and let hang dry.
