We had fun this weekend coloring eggs.
I have been wanting to try this process for years after seeing it on Martha Stewart! So we gathered some old silk ties.
How to dye eggs with silk ties
Cut the silk ties apart removing the lining until there is enough silk fabric to cover an uncooked egg.
Wrap the silk around the egg tightly. We wrapped it like a piece of candy with twisted ends and then tucked the ends behind.
Make strips from an old sheet or other fabric.
Tie a strip tightly around the egg to secure the silk.
Put the eggs in a non-reactive pan (stainless steel, glass or enamel). Cover eggs completely with water.
Put 3 tablespoons of vinegar in the water. Simmer eggs for 20 – 30 minutes. Ours simmered for 30 minutes.
Carefully remove eggs from water and allow to cool.
We had fun and they turned out beautifully!
