tie-dyed eggs

I found this idea on several different craft blogs and I knew I had to try it!

TIE-DYED EGGS! So amazing and fun!

Step 1: Find some old silk ties or go to the thrift store like I did. They have to be 100% silk or they won’t work! And remember ugly ties make the best eggs!

2. Cut the ties in pieces and wrap the eggs, printed side touching the egg. It also works best if the egg is horizontal.

3. Then cover the silk wrapped eggs in a cotton type fabric

4: Put the eggs in a pot and cover with water. Then add ¼ cup vinegar.

5: Bring the water to a boil, turn down heat and let it simmer for about 25 minutes

6: Remove eggs from water and let cool and when they are cool enough to touch remove the fabric. ( I get really impatient with this part)

I was so excited to see how they turned out!

I just love this effect!
