Silk Tie Dye Eggs




A few years ago when I was still living in the US I saw this at Martha Stewart Show http://marthastewart.com/article/silk-tie-easter-eggs.  But I didn't have any silk ties to use then. Few Easters later and now in Holland I finally collected enough ties to do this. 













This is the most amazing craft I have ever done. Almost like magic and it is edible. I am looking forward to do more. I am going to hunt for more silk ties at  thrift shops, flea markets or braderie on my upcoming trip to France.Happy Easter!


After providing a link to Martha as above I still have dummies friends who ask me to illustrate a "how to" for them.
