Silk Dyed Eggs!

Silk Dyed Eggs!

Did you know that you can imprint your favourite silk fabric pattern on egg in a few easy steps! Check out this tutorial and find it out!

What you need

Materials Needed:

Eggs
Scissors
Silk fabric (100% silk)
Stainless steel pot
Thread and cotton fabric.

Instructions

Make sure that the fabric is 100% silk otherwise the dye won’t work.

Cut out enough silk fabric to cover the entire egg. Cover the egg with the right side of the fabric facing the egg.

Once you’re done wrapping the egg tie the open end of the fabric with a thread.

Wrap the entire egg with thread, making sure that the silk fabric is at the closest to the egg. This is for better imprint.

Now place the egg in a stainless steel pot and cover the egg with water. Add 1/4 white vinegar and bring it to a boil. After 20 minutes you can take out the eggs and allow them to cool.

Once the egg cools down you can remove the fabrics and see the magic! Use different printed fabrics for more fun patterns! Enjoy!



What you need

Cupcake stand
Easter eggs to fit your stand
Easter Grass or shredded paper
Easter picks or small ornaments for topper
Ribbon

Instructions

This Easter craft project shows you how to make an Easter egg table centerpiece for your next Easter Dinner using a cupcake tier, stand or tower. The Easter eggs can then be given out as Easter Egg table gifts.

Start by taking your Cupcake stand  and working out how many eggs you will need to fit onto your stand. We used large eggs, but you could also use small eggs especially if you were using a  mini cupcake stand.

Place the grass into the cupcake holders and pop your egg into place. Finish off with a beautiful ribbon and some Easter picks or decorations to go onto the top.

This is a great way to use your cupcake stand for something a little different.

    This is a lovely idea especially with Easter coming up. This will be a great project for me to do with the silk sari material I have 🙂
