I'm not a crafty person, but every now and then there is a project that doesn't seem too taxing for my abilities. Yesterday afternoon I ran across the idea of silk-dying Easter eggs and it was love on so many levels.
First, I really don't like dying Easter eggs. I wish I had never started the tradition with my kids. It's messy, time consuming, and the results never turn out the way I want them to. Oh, and I'm the only one in the family who will eat a hard-boiled egg.
Second, it involves re-using something that is old and worn, which I love. (There, I've worked Earth Day and Easter into one post together.)
Third, well, the results can be STUNNING! Google it and you'll see that we don't have to all be Martha Stewart to make them.
Want to make your own silk-dyed eggs? Here's a great tutorial.
Have a blessed Easter!
