  2. Socks. Socks are a great way to practice the craft without too much of an investment. Find an old pair or get a new one at the dollar store and try out some cool tie dye colors like purple, magenta, orange and lime green. Socks are a fun accent to any camp outfit.
  3. Bandana. Another great camp staple is a colorful bandana. There are tons of ways to wear a bandana and it never gets boring. Grab a plain white bandana and try out the art of tie dying by sampling patterns. There are tons of great designs to chose from and you can even make up your own.
  4. Pillow cases. A tie dyed pillow case adds to the decor of any camp cabin. Grab a plain white pillow case, pick your favorite colors and choose a design. This simple project will brighten up any campers bed.

So get creative! Express yourself with tie dye this summer. Enjoy this great summer camp tradition.
