Tie Dyed Easter Eggs

Recipes

Supplies

Remove seams and lining from ties. You just want a piece of the silk. Cut silk into a piece big enough to wrap around an egg.

eggs4

Wrap an egg with a piece of silk, making sure the printed side of the material is facing the egg. Just try to make as much smooth contact with the fabric to the egg as you can. The pattern will transfer better if it is right up agains the egg. Any part that is folded or wrinkled will leave kind of a tie-dyed pattern (which is a good thing, it’s pretty that way) Secure with twist-tie or string.

Place the silk wrapped egg in a piece of white sheet, pillowcase, or old tablecloth and secure tightly with another twist tie or string.

eggs1

Place the eggs in a pot. Fill pot with water to cover eggs completely. Then add the 1/4 cup of white vinegar.

eggs2

Bring water to a boil, turn heat down and simmer for 20-25 minutes.

Remove eggs from water with tongs or spoon and let cool on a pile of paper towels or in a colander. When eggs are cool enough to handle, you can remove the fabric.

Notes:

Stock up on cheap ties or scarves at thrift stores. Just make sure they have a 100% silk tag.

To add a little bit of lustre to your eggs, put a dab of vegetable oil on a paper towel and rub into the egg after it has cooled.
