Easy silk tie dyed Easter eggs

Here is  fun new way to dye Easter eggs, using silk ties from thrift stores! These are so cool and each one turns out different! Let's get started! Here is what you'll need:

- Eggs (full or empty. Blown out eggs last way longer) (I'll explain how to blow out an egg later)
- 100% silk ties (must be 100% or this won't work! Check the label before buying, I purchased mine at thrift shops for next to nothing)
- White light weight cotton material such as an old pillow case, tee shirt, I used an old receiving blanket
- Pot of water
- Twist ties
- 1/4 cup of white vinegar 

*Start by cutting the ties apart into sections large enough to cover your egg 
*Wrap egg carefully but tightly in in the material with the good side touching the egg (so the part  that would be facing out of you were to put the tie on!)
*Next secure the material with a twist tie 
*Wrap your little bundle in a piece of the light weight white cotton and secure with another twist tie
*Carefully place your tied up packaged into a pot of water so they're covered. then add your vinegar, bring to a boil
*Continue boiling for 20 minutes 
*Remove with tongs 

Please try and let them cool before you unwrap them! I know it's EGGciting, but believe me, those suckers are hot!
That's it! You're done!
