How to: make tie-dyed easter eggs

Above: Using Mongram Mammas tutorial, Woof Nanny made these beautiful dyed eggs

One of my favourite things to do as a kid at Easter was to blow out eggs and dye them using food colourings.

It's a fairly simple craft to do, but it's tricky getting any detail on them, and they only look OK on display.

However, this awesome tutorial on how to dye eggs using silk ties by Monogram Momma (original idea from the craft queen Martha Stewart) look really cool and are so detailed.

Made using silk ties or off cuts of patterned silk, you simply wrap the eggs with the silk and  a piece of waste fabric - like calico. Boil them with a little vinegar in a glass or enamel bowl and then unwrap your creations once cool.

Really simple and something you can do with your kids. These eggs are definitely too good to eat and would be a fantastic craft for the Easter weekend.
