Can you believe it’s already March?! A sign that I should probably take down the Christmas tree in my bedroom……..no.
The temporary solution is to put some Easter eggs under the tree, pray my cat doesn’t sit on them, and no one will know the difference.
My favorite way to dye Easter eggs now is with 100% silk. And the cheapest way to get 100% silk is through Goodwill.
Goodwill never ever fails me and the particular day I went in, it was apparent that they had just gotten a donation of some of the ugliest silk ties I’d ever seen in my life. #win
Never underestimate the power of an ugly tie. They make the prettiest eggs.
How To: DIY Silk Tie Dyed Eggs
You will need:
Thrift Store 100% Silk Ties
Cotton Blend Fabric
Eggs – boiled or hollowed out
1. Use a seam ripper or scissors to cut open the tie until all you have left is the fully intact, outer, silk fabric.
2. Wrap each egg in the silk fabric, right-side-facing the egg, and secure with a rubber band.
3. Repeat with a plain, cotton blend fabric. There should be two layers of fabric covering the egg now.
4.Bring a pot of water to a boil, add 3 tablespoons or so of vinegar, and submerge the eggs for about 15 -20 minutes.
5. Let cool and unwrap.
Now go on! Decorate that Easter tree. I know I’m not the only one…
