“Tie” Dyed Easter Eggs

Posted on

Last Easter I made these tie-dyed beauties.  They are so easy to make and super fun for any Easter table centerpiece. This is what you need:

raw eggs
silk ties
white pillow case/fabric
hair ties or twist ties
white vinegar
tongs
colander
vegetable oil

Start by cutting your silk ties into squares that will wrap completely around a raw egg.  Wrap a square of silk around each egg and secure with a hair tie.

Once you have the silk wrapped around the eggs, cut out squares of your plain white pillow case and then wrap this around the silk and secure with another hair band.  Place in the bottom of a pot.

Fill the pot with enough water to completely cover the eggs and then add add 1/4 C of white vinegar. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes.


Remove the eggs from the water with tongs and put them in a colander to cool.


When the eggs are cool enough to touch, take the fabric off  and pat them dry with a paper towel.  You can also rub a dab of vegetable oil on them to make them nice and shiny.


And voila, you have beautifully dyed easter eggs!  Perfect for any Easter centerpiece.
