Silk Tie Dyed Eggs

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.
Tie another strip around the egg the other way.
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.
Now for the best part. Unwrap the eggs.
It is always a fun surprise to see what you get!
We had fun and they turned out beautifully!
