Dye Your Easter Eggs Using Old Silk Ties and Scarves!

Here's a fun and different way to dye your Easter eggs...just use old silk scarves and ties! The dyes from 100% silk will transfer to the eggs...resulting in very interesting eggs for your Easter basket! Just wrap the eggs in silk, then double with a piece of an old sheet, add vinegar water and simmer. Visit my blog for a link to the tutorial.

Just double a piece cut from the silk with a piece of an old sheet or pillow case, wrap it around the egg and secure with a rubber band. Add the eggs to a glass or enamel pot, cover with water and 3 tablespoons of white vinegar. Simmer for 20 minutes, let cool and remove the silk.

You will find that the pattern of the silk has transferred to the egg! An interesting tie-dyed t-shirt look will be on the back from the gathered fabric. PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT EAT THESE EGGS AS THE DYE FROM THE SILK MAY NOT BE FOOD SAFE.
