I have been tie.....DYING to show you my Boho Tie-Dye Curtains!!!
We had these off white curtains for a while and I was actually about to just take them on over to Goodwill...But! I thought....What a Great time to try out Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint on Curtains!
Who Loves Tie-Dye...Anything?! Haha! Let's have some Fun!
Take any pair of white or off white curtains...(mine were shear but they can be solid as well) and tie them into knots. I didn't have any rubber bands so I improvised by tying knots!
Step 2: Grab a Bucket or Container that you can get a little messy.
Step 3: Get your Dixie Belle Paint Chalk Mineral Paint....I used the following colors.....
COLONEL MUSTARD: https://dixiebellepaint.com/colonel-mustard-chalk-paint/?aff=376
All Colors are Available to Purchase through the Links I added for you above! Yay!
Step 4: I added a tablespoon of Peony to the bucket.
Step 5: Add about a quart of water.
Step 6: Then I dipped the curtain in the bucket of Peony water! Just get it in there and get it wet. Trust Me! Lol!
Step 7: Grab your Dixie Belle Synthetic Brushes to paint the knots and between the knots. I used the following brushes....
Oval Medium x 2
Step 8: Alternate all three colors using a different brush for each color!
Step 9: Leave the curtains in the knots and set aside overnight.
Watch the Ducks go by!
Okay...truth be told....I love going outside to do a project when the babies are out to play! Guilty!!
Step 10: NEXT DAY....Undo those Knots! Yes...they might be a little hard to undo, but you Got THIS! Once all the knots are out...Lay Flat in the yard and pin them down or Hang on a Clothesline OUTSIDE! DO NOT PUT THESE IN YOUR DRYER!!!! Unless you want to tie-dye Everything! Lol!
Just keep these babies outside until they are FULLY Dry. Do Not Place them on anything you don't want paint on ;)
I put mine to dry on my back porch....but I paint out there so I don't mind a little paint ;)
Place in the SUN for FASTER Dry Time!
Once they are Completely Dry.....You're Done!!!
I even added some Boho Fringe to the Top of Mine because I gotta be Extra! Lol!
I hope you enjoy this step by step tutorial!
