tie-dying eggs

Oh my goodness this was my favorite
Start by going to the thrift store and buy all the cheap silk ties you can find. Cheaper the silk the better. Bold colors and patterns look amazing.

After gutting the ties cut a square of the tie just big enough to wrap around the whole egg, We were able to get about 4 eggs per tie. Wrap the square right side around the egg and tie with a rubber band. You want it to be touching as much of the egg as possible.
Stick all your eggs in a old pair of tights and put it in a big bowl of boiling water (medium heat) with 3 tbls of vinegar. Bring back to a boil and simmer for 20minutes.

Run cold water over the eggs when cooled...
Unwrap the magic
Next year I am going to hallow out the eggs so that I can keep them
For more instructions you can watch this.
