After recently sharing a DIY Mickey tie-dye T-shirt photo from Walt Disney World Ambassador Stephen, many of our Instagram fans and followers said they wanted more – and a tie-dye tutorial!

So today, inspired by your response to Stephen’s tie-dye artwork, we’re bringing a touch of Disney magic to one of this summer’s big trends!  Our special how-to video shows exactly how to make your own Mickey shirt and we’re also sharing a look at the latest tie-dye Disney styles.

For those of you looking for a quick fix for all your tie-dye needs, you can visit shopDisney.com for the latest looks, including a spirit jersey and a variety of T-shirts themed to both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.

Tami Reed shared her favorite shirt at Disney’s Riviera Resort. 

And in the latest “Stories from the Parks” series, we shared #DisneyCreators experiences from guests and friends enjoying the epic adventures at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that included tie-dye fashions from Anabelle Blum and family.   

As you can see in our step-by-step instructional video above, transforming an ordinary T-shirt into a beautiful Mickey tie-dye shirt with splashes of color is easy and fun.  And it begins with Mickey ears and tracing.

After tracing, the art of tie-dying continues by tying the shirt – soaking and adding dye. Then, wrap and wait 24 hours. Here’s a look at all of the steps to follow:
