What You Need

  • White shower curtain
  • Spray bottle
  • Liquid dye

Step 1: Prep and Fold

Wash and dry a basic white shower curtain. Press if needed. Accordion-fold the fabric in 12-inch sections down the length of the curtain. Then fold the piece accordion-style the other direction, forming a square. 

Step 2: Secure the Curtain

Sandwich the folded curtain between cardboard squares cut slightly smaller than 12 inches. Secure with two rubber bands on each side to create a 3x3-inch grid. 

Step 3: Spray Dye

Fill the spray bottle with liquid dye. On a protected work surface, spray the dye around all edges of the folded curtain, then wrap the curtain in plastic for six hours.

Step 4: Set the Curtain

Unwrap the curtain and remove rubber bands. Unfold and let dry completely before laundering.
