Silk Tie Eggs

We dyed eggs this year Martha Stewart Style. I went to the thrift store and found a nice selections of 100% silk neck ties and cut them into sections big enough to go around and egg. Then we filled a pan with the silk-wrapped eggs and enough water to cover them, then added three tablespoons of vinegar. Boiled them for 20 minutes then unwrapped the eggs to discover these beauties.

When I told my sister of the process, she thought 20 minutes was too long....and it was. The yolks were green. Maybe next time, I'll boil the eggs for 10 minutes.

We enjoyed the fact that it was a different way to do this tradition and we really loved the designs on the eggshells.
