One of my favorite things to dye are tights. They only take a small amount of dye and you can even dye right in a mason jar! I thought it would be fun to create Halloween tights for my daughter. With a few rubber bands and 2 colors of Rit dye (Tangerine and Black), I was able to whip up these cute, custom dyed tights in under 30 minutes.

Step By Step
I added a few tablespoons of each color of dye into a mason jar with hot water and stirred to mix. By making 2 dye baths at the same time, I was able to dye both legs different colors in one step. I occasionally stirred each dye bath to make sure the dye was able to flow freely through each leg of the tights. When the desired color is achieved (about 15 minutes), I carefully rinsed each leg of the tights under cold water (make sure you keep the legs apart so you don't mix the colors! Rinse until the water runs clear and air dry.
