Tie Dyed Easter Eggs...

Did you know can use ties to dye eggs? We did it today...It was fun and the almost three year old was able to help pick out the fabric she wanted, swathe the egg in fabric and then secure it with a twist tie. The best part about doing this with the kiddos is...drumroll...NO DYE CUPS, DYE ON THE COUNTERS, AND COLORED FINGERS THROUGH EASTER!!! (of course, the downside is that my mother won't let me eat the eggs because "ties weren't made with edible dyes, Kristen!"

The "recipe" we followed is here.

This was our outcome:

Absolutely STUNNING! I haven't read the directions yet, but I'm wondering if you could blow the eggs, then dye the empty egg shells using that technique?

Holy crap, those are beautiful! This is our first year dying eggs as a family, so I'm thinking we're going to take the standard way. Not to mention we don't seem to have any ties in the house....
