Jessie Jane's Glitter & Silk Tie Easter Eggs
- Eggs one dozen
- Powdered glitter in assorted colors, including gold for sparkle, available from Michaels.
- Egg blower (available at crafts stores) or rubber ear syringe (available at drugstores).
- Craft glue
- Wax paper
- Bowls and spoons (for glitter)
- Brush craft glue onto egg.
- Gently set in bowl of glitter.
- Spoon glitter over egg, covering entire surface.
- Remove from bowl; set on wax paper to dry for 1 hour.
- One dozen eggs
- Glass or enamel pot (you cannot use a metal pot)
- Silk ties, scarves, shirts, or boxers
- White sheets, white cloth napkins, or white socks to cover the silk wrapped eggs
- Little rubber bands or twist ties
- Water 6 tablespoons of white vinegar
- Take your silk ties and cut up the backside of them until you get a large flat piece of silk. Discard the tie "filling" and cut the silk into squares so the pieces are large enough to cover one raw egg and tie at the top.
- Wrap the raw egg with a piece of silk, making sure the darker printed side (the nicer side) is face down to the egg.
- Tie all eggs with a twist tie or rubber band.
- Insert silk wrapped ties into the white baby socks.(Or whatever white material you are using. If using tablecloth squares you must rubber band again at the top.)
- Place all wrapped eggs in your enamel pot and cover with water and add your vinegar. Bring water to a boil, turn the heat down, and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Remove eggs from water with tongs and let drain/cool on a rack.
- Remove white wrapping and silk from eggs. Pretty cool huh?
