I love spring. I love the excitement of new flowers, new growth, the earth coming back to life after the long winter.
The egg has been a symbol of rebirth of the earth for more than two thousand years. In honor of the first day of spring we decorated these "Tie Dyed Eggs" last night. It was easy peasy to get these fabulous designs. We used some old thrifted silk ties and the easy to follow tutorial at Our Best Bites.
I only had five white eggs on hand so we only dyed five. I'll be saving up the white eggs and dying more. I think they turned out great. Next time I will try starting with wet silk fabric because I think there were some air bubbles that kept the dye from transferring properly in places.
Try it! You will love this project!
