Since it's almost Easter, I thought I'd repost about Necktie Eggs (original post from my Woof Nanny blog)Vintage Lilac
posted about this idea from Martha Stewart.There's a video tutorial on Martha
(if it doesn't link, search "Silk-Tie Easter Eggs")Monogram Momma
also has a tutorial.
I got together with my friend Jen, and we dyed Easter Eggs using pieces of silk neckties.
It was so much fun unwrapping the fabric packages to see what magic was inside!
Definitely an oohs and aahs moment.
Look at the lily!
Three of the eggs didn't color, because one tie was polyester (oops), and the other two were hand-marbled designs in swirled colors. Perhaps somehow the colors had been permanently set, so the design didn't transfer.
We'll have to find ways to best wrap the eggs, because where the fabric folds or pleats, the egg remains white.
It was really easy though, really fun, and we'll definitely do it again next year!
