I posted about these fun Easter Eggs last year and thought I would give you a recap as they are so easy to make! These amazing colors and patterns come from old silk ties. Aren't they gorgeous? Here's how to make them yourself:
First, raid your husbands old ties or make a trip to the thrift store. The ties must be 100% silk and bright colors work best. The louder the better!
Now cut the ties into pieces, about 5" square, large enough to wrap around an egg.
Secure the fabric with a rubber band, then cook as if you are making regular hard boiled eggs (bring to a simmer, then cover and steep for about 15 minutes). I also add a couple of teaspoons of white vinegar to the water.
Plunge the eggs into a cold water bath to cool off,
This is a great way to color eggs with kids because there is no mess and it's so fun to unwrap each egg and see what design transferred.
Of course, keep these refrigerated until you have your Easter Egg Hunt!
