How To Dye Eggs Using Silk

silk eggs hack

Krafts With Kendra has done it again! She has put together a brilliant video tutorial on dyeing Easter eggs. There are so many tutorials out there but this one is different from the rest because it uses silk and produces vintage looking eggs. Love.

I’ll have to try this dying style next. I did marbled eggs last year, much to the dismay of my kitchen table. This method is perfect for beginners and non-Picassos.

You will need; eggs (of course), silk scarves (they can be used 2-3 times), white fabric, twist ties, white vinegar (to help the color set, and oil (to shine them up after). The eggs end up patterned and have a faded vintage look.

From everything I’ve seen you can’t eat these eggs. Fabric dye and food dye aren’t the same thing. So before you do this, remember you won’t be able to make a huge bowl of egg salad for Easter dinner after all the eggs have been found. If you decide to use food dye so you can make that salad, make this recipe. Yum.

Here’s the video… Enjoy!
