Tie Dye Scarf - How to Tie Dye Scarves to Sell - Two Ideas!
How to Dye Scarves with Permanent Markers - Sharpies!
IDEA NUMBER ONE: Sharpies!!
There are a few ways to put your creative touch onto scarves, but here are two ideas that are quick and easy and take the least amount of supplies. The first one is using sharpie permanent markers. Most people have at least one of these around the house, but you can now get them in lots of colors. Check out the video below and see if this doesn't get you inspired to try it!
All you need is a plain silk scarf, sharpie markets in whatever thickness you want, and a medicine dropper for the rubbing alcohol. You can get many of these supplies online below.
Customers who frequent craft shows love original products. The day of just stamping out duplicates of everything that will simply collect dust on the mantelpiece are over. You have to create a "want" when it comes to wearable art.
They want more for their money, they want to be able to show off your craft and that is why wearable art has become such a hit for customers as well as your pocketbook.
Scarves have been a big hit in fashion for the last few years, but creating that beautiful "retro tie dye" is very appealing. If you love to create with paint, then you could add a few of these to your next craft show and see just how well they sell. Just like anything else, display is important so you could invest in a stand that will showcase your colourful and beautiful one of a kind tie dye scarves.
But if you now have visions of vats of dye, then check again! You can get fabric dye is a spray can that will do wonders for this look.
Watch the video to find out how to do this easily. You can get creative with colours and try different techniques. You can do this indoors as long as you protect the surfaces with paper and they dry very quickly. These make great gifts too, so you could try and market them as gifts.
Create Wearable Art for Yourself and Show it Off at the Craft Show
Create a beautiful scarf for yourself and wear it to attract customers. Lots of people will get ones to compliment different outfits, so try different shades of colours and see which ones move the quickest. You can get the supplies such as fabric spray online at Amazon. If you search you can also find undyed scarves for sale too, or you may want to simply purchase the lightweight cotton and make your own, or hire someone else to make them.
You could also offer gift bags and/or gift wrap as a way to entice a sale. Scarves are quite often bought as gifts. Try to be fair with your price. As you can see by the video it won't take you too long, so if you can sell them for under 20 dollars you will sell them quickly. Anything under 20 dollars doesn't seem to take as much "thinking" on the customer, it is more likely they will purchase in this price range, plus it is small and can be simply carried or worn right away.
