Silk Tie Dyed Easter Eggs by The Happy Creations

Have you tried to decorate your Easter eggs with old tie?

This year I’ve decided to experiment with my Easter Eggs.

 I’ve seen so many posts about the Silk tie technique, however, I knew about this technique from a great Auntie of mine.

I remember when I was a little girl she always brought her unique Easter eggs on our Easter table.

They used to make them when they didn’t have enough time to dye their eggs with onions, flowers, leaves, cabbage etc
 So here’s what you need to do:

Find silk ties, I took some old ties from my husband.

You will need:

Old 100% Silk Ties
White Eggs (to achieve vibrant colours)
White Vinegar

non-reactive pot (enamel, glass or stainless steel)
Elastic Bands

Cotton fabric

       
Cut the ties in squares( 5 x 5 inches approximately) and roll up the fabric against the egg(the brightest side facing the egg).

Wrap them tightly for the best transfer.

Tie another layer with the cotton fabric.

Place them in the pan, cover them with water.

Add 1/4cup white Vinegar.

Boil the eggs for 20 minutes and remove from the pan.

Let them cool and unwrap.

Shopping List:

Ribbon and Moss from Hobbycraft

Use a nice bowl from your kitchen or check some on Amazon like this Longchamp Footed Individual Bowl 11cm below.

You can also use an Easter BasketI found this one on Amazon.

I’ve used brown eggs so the result wasn’t very colourful (although I like it a lot).

So here’s our Silk Tie Easter Eggs, hope you like them.
