Silk Tie Dyed Easter Eggs
You need 100% silk for this to work. Try to check the labels to ensure you’re not purchasing polyester, which can seem to be similar. I get old ties at the thrift store where they’re usually truly modest. Also, recollect: when it comes to ties, you may not need monstrous ones on your man, but revolting ties do make pretty eggs! You could also use silk from an old blouse, a scarf, or whatever. So if you’re scavenging through a thrift store, look at some different areas as well. I attempt to discover an assortment of colors and patterns. Usually dull blues, purples, and reds work the best, but it’s amusing to try different things with a wide range of things. Curiously, no one can really tell how a significant part of the color and example will transfer to the eggs. Sometimes ties I think will be awesome really disappoint, and ones I didn’t have a favorable opinion of make the most beautiful eggs. Here’s some of the ties I snatched from my nearby thrift store:
Usually it will let you know if it’s 100% silk directly on the principle name of the tie, but a great deal of them don’t, and if that is the case, watch that little minor end, it’s usually covering up there.
The first step is to deconstruct the tie. Snip the seams and expel the fixing so you are just left with the silk. (What’s more, yes, this old Christian Dior tie, which I love, was just 50 cents at the thrift store! If it was a skirt, I would absolutely wear it. I have gotten numerous irate comments about the way that I destroyed a Christian Dior tie. Honestly, for 50 cents I really couldn’t care less who’s name is on it. Get over it, individuals!)
