Super Easy Easter Egg Craft

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was a great idea, so I tried it! Here is the exact pin if you would like to check it out. http://pinterest.com/pin/53339576806741971/

Materials needed:

  • Eggs
  • 100% Silk - neck ties, scarves, blouses, skirts, *anything as long as it is 100% silk and has a pattern
  • Light weight cotton material - pillow case, shirt, *I used a baby receiving blanket!
  • Twist ties
  • 1/4 cupWhite vinnegar
1. If using neck ties, cut the seam at the back and remove the lining, so the tie is all opened up.
   Cut squares from silk AND ligtweight cotton material big enough to wrap the egg in and have room to tie  it up.

2. Wrap egg in silk material making sure the pattern side is touching the egg (the part that is facing out if a neck tie) You want the material to be tight on the egg, but not to break it! Secure with twist tie.

3. Wrap egg package in second square of cotton material, secure with twist tie. * I found it easier to place the cotton piece down first, then the silk and tie them all up as one.

4. Place egg packages into a pot of water, just enough water until they are covered. Pour in 1/4 cup of vinnegar and bring to a boil.

5. After 20 minutes of boiling, remove from water and let cool.

6. Unwrap your eggies to reveal their beautiful patterns!

7. To make your eggs shine, lightly rub some vegetable oil on them!
