Egg-dyeing season

It’s getting to be that time. Egg-dyeing and egg-decorating tutorials are popping up on my blogroll. This morning I got an email from a friend who tried the silk necktie dyeing method that I posted on last year. She wrote, “I followed your advice about not worrying if the ties were ugly, and the one with the most pronounced (pretty) diamond pattern was UGLY.”

Three cheers for the ugly ties of the world!!!

Eggs dyed with silk neckties

Last years egg-dyeing efforts

Next I’d like to try some  Natural dye recipes, maybe in conjunction with ferns, flowers, and leaves.

Or, in classic Martha Stewart fashion, there’s this incredibly time consuming yet incredibly impressive method for making eggs that crack open to reveal ganache-filled chocolate. The tutorial from Not Martha is even better.

    Wow, those look amazing. Time to raid the Huz’s closet for old ties.
