I saw this idea last year on Pinterest but I was too late to try it for Easter. The idea of using old silk neck ties to dye eggs sounded so intriguing! I immediately started looking for inexpensive silk ties at the thrift store.
Place a large pot(glass or enamel) of water on the stove, bring to a boil and add 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Gently place the wrapped eggs in the water, keep it at a low boil and make sure the eggs are all covered with water. I did four eggs at a time. I had to add the steamer on top of my eggs to keep them from floating up since they were hollow. Keep the eggs in the water for about 20 minutes.
