How to Dye Easter Eggs with Silk Ties
  • 100% silk ties
  • stretchy white cotton (like a t-shirt or jersey type fabric)
  • baking sheet
  • scissors
  • rubber bands
  • slotted spoon
  • uncooked eggs
  • ¼ cup distilled vinegar
  • lidded pot
  1. Cut the ties down the seam and remove the wool on the inside.
  2. Cut the extra fabric from the bottom of the ties to ensure a squarish shape.
  3. Next, cut the white fabric into squares large enough to wrap around an egg and set aside.
  4. Now you're ready to wrap your eggs!
  5. Holding a cut silk tie, color side up, place an egg, pointy side down onto the silk.
  6. Wrap the silk tightly around the egg, twist the top, and secure it with a rubber band.
  7. Next, take a white cotton piece and wrap the egg the same way you did with the silk.
  8. Twist the top tightly again, and secure with another rubber band.
  9. When the eggs are all wrapped, fill the pot with enough water to cover the eggs and add the distilled white vinegar.
  10. Cover and bring to a low boil for 15-20 minutes.
  11. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon to a baking sheet, and let sit until cool.
  12. Unwrap your eggs to see the beautiful designs!
Do not eat these eggs! The dye isn't food safe.
