Shibori Tie Dye Dog Bed

Tie dye doesn't just have to be for people ... our furry family members love it too (even if they don't know it yet)! Skip the same old stuff you find in stores and get creative with pet scarves, T-shirts or even a dog bed like we made (we decided to go big or go home). Okay, you might be thinking, that sounds great, but tie dyeing a dog bed sounds really hard. Spoiler alert: it's not, especially when you use Tulip One-Step Tie Dye! Check out our video below.

Maybe you're frustrated because you haven't been able to find the perfect rug for your space, or maybe you're frustrated because you have found the perfect rug and it's a bazillion dollars! Before you tell yourself to suck it up and get out your credit card, close your eyes and hit the buy button, finish reading this post. Because you can actually hand paint your own colorful masterpiece for the floor with Tulip Soft Paints for super cheap - we'll show you just how easy it is!

Craft Room Makeover Rainbow Shelves

Getting organized is one of those goals we all usually have, but half of us love the process, and the other half hates it! We'll admit it, it DOES feel better to have a well-organized workspace whether it's your desk at the office or your craft room at home (eye roll, sigh - can you tell which half we belong to?!). Another perk: organizing your space can be really pretty too - especially when you use color coding! With that in mind, we decided to organize our amazing rainbow assortment of Tulip color products with a little extra help from our friends at COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint. Read on to get inspired!

Tulip Color Story Health and Wellbeing

Here at Tulip, we decided to kick off the year focused on health & wellbeing since it's such an integral part of all of our lives, no matter our age, profession or gender. And whether some of us are focused on major lifestyle changes or a simpler goal of drinking more water or taking more walks, we truly believe that a healthier life - whatever that means to each of us - leads to a happier life! So we came up with easy, affordable DIYs using Tulip color products that are focused on upping our health game (with the added bonus of exercising our creative muscles) and making something personal that hopefully motivates us on our individual health & wellbeing journeys. Check out our roundup and get inspired!

DIY Custom Painted Yoga Mat

Nama-slay your yoga practice with a mat that's so much more! A custom-painted yoga mat is a fun way to get artistic for an afternoon, and a fantastic way to express your own personal style every time you do your yoga workout. Okay, you might be thinking, but where am I going to find a paint that's flexible enough to stay on my mat between workouts and rolling it up and carting it around? We're so glad you asked! Tulip Soft Fabric Paint dries permanent, soft (hence the name) and flexible, so it's perfect for keeping up with your practice. Read on to see our creative flow, then get inspired to start your own!

DIY Portion Control Containers

If you've been on a fitness kick this year, you're not alone ... we've been trying to make better health choices too (in case you couldn't tell from all of our health and wellbeing posts lately)! Working out is one thing, but monitoring food intake and portions is quite another; it can get really tricky, which is why we came up with a fun way to make portion control easier - and of course more colorful. How did we do it? With a little help from Scribbles 3D Paint, of course! Read on to get inspired to create your own mealtime management system.

3D Paint Water Tracker Bottle

Staying hydrated is one of the most important things we can do for our bodies, and sometimes that can be a challenge if we spend a lot of time on the go, we work out a lot, or if we're addicted to drinking anything BUT water (more coffee, anyone?). A water tracker bottle you can haul around with you all day is one way to make it easier to get your daily intake of water - and the right amount too! Sure, you could buy one, but since we're fans of DIYing things around here, we think you should make your own instead. All you need is a simple water bottle and Tulip Dimensional Paint; read on to check out our version, then get inspired to make yours!

Because we'll show you that all you need are Tulip Soft Fabric Paints in your favorite shades and a paintbrush you probably already have in a drawer somewhere to create a set of weights that are as artistic as they are useful.

DIY Gym Bag with Quote Art

Let's be honest, the reason most of us work out is so we can eat more pizza, right?!?! In the spirit of cheesy, doughy, saucy goodness (OMG we're so hungry now), and okay, the spirit of hitting the gym every now and then too (or every day if that's your style), we came up with this fun DIY gym bag design that infuses color and humor into our workout routines. Grab a pack of Tulip Graffiti Fabric Markers and maybe a slice - or 5 - of pizza (you know, to help get you inspired) and give those creative muscles a workout with this easy quote art project.
