Twist on Easter Egg Decorating

We all know how much fun it is to decorate hard-boiled eggs with your family on Easter. For me, that is the best part (besides the delicious food, of course). I have been doing the same ol’ color dye on my eggs ever since I was a little girl running around in my poofy dress and bunny ears on my head. Click here to check out this fun, and creative, twist on how to decorate your Easter eggs.

  1. Cut silk scarves or ties and white fabric into 7″ X 7″ squares
  2. Wrap an egg tightly in silk. Then wrap in white fabric and secure with a twist tie.
  3. Repeat process with all eggs.
  4. Place eggs in a non-reactive metal or glass pot and fill with water.

**Silk scarves can be used 2-3 times, so you can get more then just one egg with that design!!**

The family and I will be ATTEMPTING (hopefully succeeding) in creating these awesome patterns on our hard-boiled eggs this Easter. And it really is so easy! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with your family, and I look forward to posting next week about how our eggs turned out.
