For the past 5 or 6 years, I have been dyeing our Easter Eggs with silk ties (or anything I find that is 100% silk). I learned this from the best, Martha Stewart, and you can find the instructions here. This afternoon, after I realized that Landon was not going to take a nap, we started dyeing our eggs. It is seriously so much easier than breaking out all those cups with different colors. Uggh, the mess gives me nightmares.
Step 1: Gather all necessary items.
Step 2: Wrap a piece of silk around the raw egg.
Step 3: Wrap a piece of cotton around the silk and secure the layers with a rubber band.
Step 4: Cover with water and 3 tablespoons water. Boil for 20 minutes.
After the eggs have cooled, unwrap and enjoy the beauty!
