I have been making silk tie Easter Eggs for a few years now, and they are always a hit. They are so easy to make and every egg is so unique. You need 100% silk. It will not work if it is not 100% silk. I got a combination or silk ties, shirts, boxers, etc. from the Depot. Wrap the silk around the egg. Wrap a piece of white cotton (tee shirt or sheets work well) around the silk. I wrap a rubber band around the top of the egg. Fill the pot with water and add 3 tablespoons vinegar. Bring to a boil and boil 20 minutes. Let the eggs cool slightly and then take off the fabric. Aren't they beautiful!
