Silk Eggs

This week, we’ve been doing crafts to decorate our Spring Nature Table.  Today’s craft was simple and fun with such beautiful results.  I picked up a few silk scarves and shirts from Good Will and blew out some duck eggs.  Then we followed The Magic Onion’s directions on silk dying eggs.  So lovely!

We loved the results!  Next time, we will be careful to smooth the silk around the egg as much as possible, with little bunching of the fabric.  If the fabric is flat on the egg, the pattern comes out more clearly.  If there is bunching, it looks more batiked,  which is lovely too.
