The last time I worked with tie dye I was a summer camp counselor surrounded by a host of over-energized kids. So those memories don’t hold the softest place in my mind. But, thankfully, working solo and on a smaller scale was much more gratifying. Inspired by this post, I set out to craft my own dip dye cactus pot set as part of our home refresh. They’re currently living in our bathroom to soak up some humidity and settle into their new tiny homes. See below for supplies + directions.
We will be taking tomorrow off for a mini vacation weekend. We’re headed to Toronto for the first time ever and can’t wait to explore their beautiful city.

- fill bowl halfway with water
- add dye to the bowl (the more dye is added, the deeper the color will be on the pot)
- dip the pot until half of it is submerged, hold for 5-10 seconds
- dip pot again, halfway up to the first dye line, hold for 15 seconds
- dip pot a final time, halfway up to the second dye line, hold for 30 seconds
- place on paper towels to dry
- repeat with additional dye colors + pots (try holding the pot sideways to vary the dye pattern)
- fill with cacti and display
