DIY Dip-dye curtains. Mix fabric dye in 5 gallon bucket. Mark curtains with rubber bands where you want color to stop. Wet fabric so it absorbs the color. Place fabric in bucket up to rubber band. Stir so fabric is covered evenly. Set timer for 15 minutes. Pull fabric out a foot or so and set timer for another 15 mins. Repeat until the end of the fabric. Wash in cold water.
