Silk-Dyed EggsLarge raw eggs Large pot Scissors Pieces of 100% silk (ties, blouses, scarves) Squares of undyed cotton (old white sheets, pillowcases or t-shirts) ¼ to ½ cup white vinegar Twist ties
Cut silk into pieces large enough to wrap around a raw egg.
Tightly wrap an egg with a piece of silk, making sure the printed side of the material is facing the egg. Secure with a twist tie.
Place the silk-wrapped egg in a piece of cotton and secure tightly with another twist tie.
Place eggs in a pot. Fill with enough water to cover eggs completely. Add ¼ to ½ cup of white vinegar to the water.
Bring water to a boil, turn heat down and simmer for 20-25 minutes or longer.
Remove eggs from water with tongs or a spoon, place on a cooling rack and let cool.
***For shiny eggs, wipe with a paper towel dabbed in vegetable oil.***
