Decorating Easter eggs is a fun activity for the Spring holidays. I’ve always used food-coloring and paints to decorate my eggs and I usually end up with color-stained fingers. But if you want to try something new, this DIY trick looks fantastic!
Kendra Smith shows how to use the dye from silk scarves and ties to decorate hard-boiled eggs!
– 100% silk scarves or ties
– 1/2 yard white fabric
– twist ties
– 3 tbsp white vinegar
– vegetable oil
The first step is to cut silk material and white fabric into 7″x&” squares. Then wrap an egg tightly in the silk followed by the white fabric and secure it with a twist tie. The next step is to simply boil the eggs (in a non-reactive metal or glass pot) and add the vinegar. Once done boiling, the eggs will be stained by the silk scarves’ patterns and colors! As a finishing touch you can use vegetable oil to make the eggs shiny. Also the silk can be 2 to 3 times!
I love this idea!
