My youngest niece recently turned 12 (yikes, how did that happen?!) and she asked me to help her create some DIY Tie Dye Ideas for a colorful Birthday Party. Of course, I was ALL IN for getting crafty. Using the “splash technique” with my favorite Tombow Dual Brush Pens, we will show you how to create some quick and easy decorations for a Tie Dye Birthday Party.

Here's how to create a Colorful Tie Dye Birthday:
To begin DIY Tie Dye Ideas Birthday projects we need to learn the splash technique, which is super easy with the right supplies. 1.) Apply three to four coordinating colors of Dual Brush Pens to the Blending Palette. 2.) Spray lightly with water in the Mister. 3.) Lay Glossy Inkjet Photo Paper shiny side down into the watered-down ink. Squish the paper into the ink making sure that the entire piece of photo paper is covered. Carefully lift up the Glossy Inkjet Photo Paper revealing the splash of color. The Dual Brush Pen Ink and water react with the emulsion in the Glossy Inkjet Photo Paper to create the most vivid and beautiful watercolor effects. NOTE: This technique will only work with INKJET Glossy Photo Paper because inkjet inks are water-based. This technique will not work with Laser Glossy Photo Paper.
Look at those bright vibrant colors! I love how each piece is unique. Mix and match coordinating colors of Tombow Dual Brush Pens, experiment with the amount of water sprayed and try out different patterns. WARNING: This splash technique is totally addictive! We sat at the dining room table creating all morning and one by one dragged the rest of the family into our madness!
For DIY Tie Dye ideas Happy Birthday Banner, use scissors to cut triangles out of the bottom of each of the four-inch by six-inch sheets of splash paper. Attach banner sections to white grosgrain ribbon with Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive and then add large white letter stickers spelling out the Birthday girl (or boy's) name.
To create cupcake toppers punch out one-inch circles from the Tie Dye paper, apply Xtreme Permanent Adhesive to the back, and sandwich a wooden toothpick in the middle between another Tie Dye circle. Use the MONOTWIN Permanent Marker to doodle words and designs onto the cupcake toppers. Punch out different shapes to personalize your party!
The Deflecto 3-Tier Dessert Stand is quick to assemble in four easy steps. It's made of durable and washable clear acrylic, and even has holes around the tiers for cake pops or lollipops. And each tier has a 1/4″ edge that makes customizing a breeze!
