There are so many ways to decorate Easter eggs. Some are a little messier than others. I prefer a little less mess, so that’s why I like these “tie” dye Easter eggs. Plus, I’ve been wondering what to do with all of my husband’s neck ties that he no longer needs for work since he has been working from home for almost ten years now. If you are looking for a new and creative way to decorate eggs this year, try out these “tie” dye eggs.
- hard-boiled eggs
- silk neck ties
- white vinegar
- white fabric, approx. 9″ squares
- rubber bands
Cut the neck ties apart at the back seam so you can flatten out the fabric, and remove the inside material.
Cut a piece big enough to fit around the egg. You can get two pieces per tie. Wrap an egg tightly in a piece of the tie and secure it with a rubber band.
Using a piece of the white fabric, wrap the egg again and secure it with a rubber band.
Once you have all your eggs wrapped in both fabrics (the tie and the white fabric), place them in a pot of water with half a cup of vinegar, and boil for 20-25 minutes.
Remove the eggs from the pot, unwrap them, and let them cool.
Finally, display your beautiful eggs!
