CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Silk Dyed EggsThere are only a few days left until Easter…just enough time for me to show you one last project…my silk dyed eggs!  For these eggs, I used a fun and different method to achieve the patterns and colors…old silk ties and scarves!

KittyOur co-host today Miss Kitty did a little research and found some easy-to-follow instructions here…courtesy of…who else?…Martha Stewart! I just followed along, doing exactly as Martha suggests. I did find on another website, however, that these eggs should not be eaten since the dye is not food safe.

Supplies A trip to Goodwill netted me some silk ties in festive Easter-y colors plus a silk scarf in a pretty shade of green. You must be sure that they are 100% silk or it will not work…so only use ties that are clearly labeled.

BK Easter And it looks like Baby Kitty is ready, too! And as Martha says...that’s a good thing…since the Easter bunny will soon be stopping by for a visit!  So the staff at Plate Addict and I are wishing lots of chocolate bunnies and jelly beans for you along with a very happy Easter!
