Last year we learned how to dye Easter eggs in an uncommon but very cool way. What you do is cut up old silk ties into squares and wrap them around an egg. Then you wrap the egg in a square of white fabric (we cut up an old t-shirt) and use twist ties to secure the fabric. Finally, you boil the eggs for 20 minutes with 1/4 c. vinegar in the water and voila! Unwrapping the eggs is the best part because you never know how they will turn out. Sometimes the ugliest tie makes the coolest egg. We like dying them this way because we aren't left cleaning up a big mess and the eggs turn out way cooler than when we try the traditional way. Plus, we have a fun new family tradition of going to the D.I. to pick out new ties to try out every Easter. Here is my favorite of the eggs from this year's batch:
