Easy Tie Dye Craft

             Hey, parent, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and guardians! (Did I miss anyone?) Do you have/know kids that love arts and crafts projects? I happened to stumble on today's by accident, truth be told. (It was a “happy little accident”, as the late and great Bob Ross would say. :) ) If so, read on for a super simple, but cool looking art project you can do with them the next time you're bored or not sure what to do to keep them entertained! (Also be sure to check out my other recent post on how to make a DIY Scratch Pad.)

What You'll Need:

-plain or printer paper
-washable markers
-coffee filters
-spray bottle of some sort (doesn't matter how big or small as long as you can spray water with it!)

*Place coffee filter on plain sheet of paper.

*Color coffee filter however you like with markers.

*Spray several times with water spray bottle. Enough to wet all colored areas.

*Remove and let your coffee filters dry for another project. (Such as apples, pumpkins, etc.)

*Repeat entire process with one or more different coffee filters.

*Again, place all coffee filters to the side to dry for other projects, if you wish. (More details below.) Wait for plain white sheet of paper to dry fully and....

*Voila! You have an interesting, tie dye looking piece of art!

             Do you (and/or your kids) love simple, easy craft/art projects? If this wasn't enough, check out this Fall/Halloween coffee filter craftround-up, where we got our inspiration to make the original apple and pumpkin coffee filter crafts.
