I recently discovered a blog that had a tutorial for using old men's silk ties to color eggs. After a stop at the local Salvation Army to pick up some ties (shown above), I gave this technique a try.
Here are my completed eggs. A couple of them came out lighter than I'd hoped, but , still, all are very pretty.
This is one of my favorites. The tie itself was ugly, but the egg is so bright and colorful. This photo doesn't do it justice.
