What fun we had using silk scarves to dye Easter eggs! I was totally amazed at the result… such stunning patterns on our eggs. These are heirloom Easter eggs for sure! And so easy to make.
* egg shells (here is a tutorial on how to blow the eggs out of the shells)
* pretty silk scarves (we found ours at Goodwill. Silk ties also work… but make sure they are silk)
* 2 Table Spoons of Vinegar
* rubber bands
* a heavy rock
While your water is heating, cut a square from your silk scarf (no… you won’t be using it as a scarf again!). The square must be big enough for you to wrap around your egg. Each egg gets its own silk square.
Put them all in the pot of boiling water. The stone is supposed to weigh your eggs down so that they remain submerged in the water. Alas, our stone wasn’t heavy enough, hence the improvisation of all the other kitchen utensils in the pot too in an effort to keep the eggs under the water. LOL!
