How to Make Silk Dyed Easter Eggs with Video

It’s time to get spiffy for Easter with silk dyed Easter eggs!

Here are some important tips for making our silk dyed Easter eggs:

  1. You gotta use 100% silk. Thrift stores are a fantastic place to find old silk ties, scarves, shirts, etc. because, well, cheap.
  2. Wrap ’em up tight! Tighter is brighter.
  3. If you prefer some white streaks and a pale color, maybe keep the material a bit looser.
  4. You can use rubber bands, twist ties, or anything that is safe in boiling water to secure the material around your eggs.
  5. Like shiny eggs? Just coat eggs with butter or a little canola oil while still warm.
  6. Finally, don’t eat the eggs. They are for decorative use only. You can blow out the insides of the egg out first so you can keep them longer, but I’d recommend a very low temp simmer after the water comes to a boil so they don’t crack.
