How To Dye Flocked Iron-on Letters

Trying a new spin on our DIY graphic tees we made a few years back! I wanted to figure out how to dye flocked iron-on letters because I was getting pretty bored with only black and white being available at the craft store! Turns out… it’s SUPER easy! Easy enough to make a whole ombré rainbow like we did, if you’d like!!! Ready?

DIY Dyed Flocked Letters

Total Time: One Hour (Plus dry time!)

Supplies

Iron-on Flocked Letters
Fabric Paint in Desired Color(s)
Water
Press-n-Seal Wrap
Paintbrush
Iron
Tea Towel or Other Thin Fabric
T-shirt, Sweatshirt or Other Item

Directions

1. Tear a piece of Glad Press 'N' Seal wrap to use as your painting surface. Place your flocked letters on the sticky surface -- it helps hold them in place as you paint.
2. In small bowls, ix a little bit of water with your paint. This will help the colors blend more easily.
3. Paint the letters your desired colors. Because they are stuck to the sticky wrap, you can paint multiple letters at once. If you're doing an ombre effect like we did, start with the top row of letters and paint 1/3 - 1/2 of them, then immediately start your second color, so the two blend slightly while still wet.
4. Let dry overnight.
5. Once your letters are fully dry, arrange them on your shirt and cover with a tea towel. Carefully iron over the letters according to the instructions that came with them.
