It’s time to get spiffy for Easter with silk dyed Easter eggs!
Here are some important tips for making our silk dyed Easter eggs:
- You gotta use 100% silk. Thrift stores are a fantastic place to find old silk ties, scarves, shirts, etc. because, well, cheap.
- Wrap ’em up tight! Tighter is brighter.
- If you prefer some white streaks and a pale color, maybe keep the material a bit looser.
- You can use rubber bands, twist ties, or anything that is safe in boiling water to secure the material around your eggs.
- Like shiny eggs? Just coat eggs with butter or a little canola oil while still warm.
- Finally, don’t eat the eggs. They are for decorative use only. You can blow out the insides of the egg out first so you can keep them longer, but I’d recommend a very low temp simmer after the water comes to a boil so they don’t crack.
