Friday Fun With Silk Dyed Eggs...








Today was spent mostly in the kitchen, so I decided to dye some eggs while I was cooking other things for Easter and tomorrow's crab feed here at our house. I saw on pinterest.com how a lady had dyed Easter eggs with silk ties. I was thinking of going to the thrift stores here and trying to get some. Then...I remembered that I had been collecting scarves with the idea I would wrap presents in them. At garage sales, you can get them for 25-50 cents. I brought them down, picked out the ones I thought were silk, and used them. About 4 of them did not turn out (probably not silk) and this is the results of the other 6. Some of the scarves were marked "silk" and others had no tag. I would recommendthe scarves as you get much more fabric out of each one.

I did repin the directions to these on my pinterest.com site under Easter Eggs.

I think it would be fun next year to do a little workshop on these...very fun.

DON'T FORGET TO SCROLL DOWN FOR OUR SECOND OF SIX GIVE-A-WAY...

    1. Hi Anne...I would really recommend looking for silk scarves at garage sales or thrift shops. You get so much more fabric out of one of them compared to a tie. I have pinned the instructions on my pinterest.com site under Easter Eggs. If you can't find it, I could mail them to you. Hugs, Mary
