Silk Tie Dyed Eggs
If your husband/boyfriend/dad has a closet full of silk ties that he no longer wears, instead of tossing them, use them to dye your Easter eggs. Simply cut the silk tie into pieces large enough to wrap around the eggs, wrap the eggs tightly in the ties, and then place inside a white pillowcase and boil in an enamel pot of water with 1/2 cup of organic white vinegar. Remove the eggs from the water, allow to cool, unwrap and admire your beautiful Easter eggs. For more eco friendly easter egg ideas check out inhabitots.
