Silk Tie Dyed Easter Eggs by The Happy Creations
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 to our Easter table.
They used to make them when they didn’t have enough time to dye their eggs with onions, flowers,leafs,cabbage etc( yes you can do that, just check my Easter eggs guide) or to impress( Auntie was a socialista).
So here’s what you need to do:
Find silk ties, I took some old ties from my husband.
Cut the ties in squares( 5 x 5 inches approximately) and roll up the fabric against the egg( 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.

Use a nice bowl from your kitchen or check some in Amazon like
this Longchamp Footed Candy Dish below.
I've used brown eggs so the result was a bit black and white(although I like it a lot).
So here's our Silk Tie Easter Eggs , hope you like them.
