So here’s another brilliant use for old discarded ties…at least the 100% silk ones: use them to dye your Easter eggs. This fabulous step-by-step tutorial comes from Dollar Store Crafts (which may be my new favorite site!) by way of Martha Stewart.
The idea is SO simple you’ll want to cry with joy. Dismember a silk tie, wrap it around a RAW Egg, wrap another layer of fabric around THAT (like cheesecloth or muslin) and then wrap your little egg-bundle in twine, yarn, or rubber bands. Boil them in water with added vinegar (to help the transfer) just as you normally would….and when they are cool- VIOLA! Nifty eggs!
Check out their step-by-steps, and start rummaging through Dad’s closet…..
