It is that time of year again, where food coloring and dye kits stain your kitchen table forever, eggs get forgotten in the bushes, faux easter grass is spread around your house like confetti and the bunny brings oodles of candy for far too many instant sugar rushes.
Each Easter season, ambition and endless Pinterest scrolling convinces me that this is the year to step out of the $1.50 egg dying kit from the supermarket and try to DIY a more unique option with my kids.
This year silk-tie Easter eggs (can also be scarves, handkerchiefs or blouses) sparked my inner creator. Since Indiebabe strives to be eco-friendly, by reusing and repurposing our scrap material, this idea of repurposing silk items for this DIY immediately had me “dying” (see what I did there) to try.
The queen of crafting herself, Martha Stewart, has this super easy how-to tutorial and video available to help you make your own silk dyed eggs!
You may have items at home to repurpose or you can visit a local thrift or consignment store for some fabulous vintage finds. Etsy also has a few small shops selling ready to use silk dying kits!
