Aren’t these grand?!?
You can do these also.
They are simple, really.
They need 100% silk. Ties are often 100% silk.
So off to the stash of mens ties. Here they are opened up and ironed. Any all silk fabric will do. Have any old scarves no longer in use?
Cut the silk into about 7″ x 7″ squares.
Also assemble 7″ x 7″ cotton squares as well.
Of course you need eggs! And twist ties. And a non-reactive pot.
Wrap each egg in one silk square, then layer one cotton square on top and twist tie.
This is a dutch oven that has an enameled interior.
Add water and 3 Tablespoons of white vinegar.
When the water was added, the eggs actually floated until the fabric got saturated.
Boil 15 minutes.
Let cool with the wrappings on. After they were mostly cool, I placed them in the fridge just to be sure.
Later, when they were good and cold, I unwrapped them and this is the result!
The silk transfers to the eggs!
The silk tie eggs have so much more character than these solid ones…found at a local grocer last week.
How do you dye eggs?
Happy Creating Everyone!
