Tie-Dyed Eggs {2013 Edition}

The past few years I have been dyeing Easter Eggs using men's ties that I buy at the Thrift Store.
I use the $2 Egg Kit to dye eggs with the girls, this is definitely more of a craft for me :)
Here are the silk ties BEFORE I cut them up to use them for the Eggs.
Remember, the uglier the tie, the better :)
These ties, dyed the Eggs like this:
The girls wanting to wear the ties:
The ties cut up & tied around the eggs:
 Wrapped up in cloth & ready to get boiled:
The final products!
Egg #1
 Egg #2: (Claire's favorite)
 Egg #3 (This one didn't turn out so well, really faded)
 Egg #4
 Egg #5
 Egg #6 (Kate's favorite)
Egg #7 (My Favorite!)
 All the Tie-Dyed Eggs together:
Which one is your favorite?
This a fun way & easy way to dye eggs!
It's always a mystery how they are going to turn out!
