The kids really got into this project.

 

*Tip – Head over to a resale shop for your ties. I think I paid less than $1.00 for each tie. Otherwise, we never could afford this fun idea.

The project was really simple for all of my kids. My youngest just turned 7,  and he had a blast taking the tie apart. 

Enough rambling on…Here’s What You’ll Need for Dying Easter Eggs with Neck Ties

  • Silk ties – to tell you the truth, I never checked the silk percentage on the ties. They all worked
  • Eggs – hard boiled
  • An old cotton towel or cotton anything
  • Scissors
  • Rubber Bands
  • Vinegar
  • Large pot with enough water to cover the eggs

  • Cut the tie up the seam that’s on the back of the tie
  • Pull the white lining out
  • Stretch the tie out flat
  • Cut squares big enough to cover an egg

  • Place the egg in the center of the tie square
  • pull the tie up and around the egg
  • Secure with a rubber band
  • Cut a square of your cotton fabric and pull it up and around the tie
  • secure with another rubber band
  • *Adding more rubber bands around the eggs helps the tie adhere better and the color transfers more evenly 
  • Place the silk covered eggs in a pot of water
  • add about 1/2 – 1 cup of vinegar – the vinegar intensifies the color
  • boil for about 15 minutes
  • drain the water and let the eggs cool. This takes a while. I rinsed ours with cold water to speed up the waiting process. Patience has never been a virtue of mine

    • I’m sure that you can. The color might be less vibrant each time, but it will create a variety of fun and very different looks. 🙂
