Very Cool Idea for Easter
I was browsing around and found this neat idea for decorating Easter eggs with no mess. I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for some silk ties to try this out. You wrap the eggs in colorfully patterned silk then in cotton and boil them. The color and patterns transfer to the eggs. Now, how clever is that! You can see the whole process at http://www.marthastewart.com/article/silk-tie-easter-eggs have fun collecting silk to try this out. A couple things to be wary of - make sure you use a glass pot or a pot that you only use for crafts so that if the dyes used on the silks aren't food safe you aren't ruining your pot. Also for the same reason, I don't think its a good idea to eat these eggs. They will be beautiful decorations though.
