DIY Silk Tie Dyed Easter Eggs Tutorial

Published by on

Silk tie dyed Easter eggs are so much fun to make and way less messy than buying a dying kit or using vinegar and food colouring!

First you’ll need to start with 100% silk ties. Right now we’re on skiing vacation, so rather than rid Mr. MK of a few duds laying around in his closet, I picked up a few from a thrift shop in Banff. It’s a good thing we were buying them to destroy, because the pickin’s were slim and ugly (unlike me … ahahaha).

A good looking tie doesn’t necessarily mean a good looking Easter egg, so go ahead and use whatever you can find. Generally, I’ve found brighter colours turn out the best, but the results are always a bit of a surprise and what make this so much fun.

Go ahead and open up the ties by removing the stitching up the middle. Most likely you’ll find that there is a white liner inside the tie. Set this aside to use later on.

Wrap your egg in the silk fabric and tie it up at one end. We used dental floss, mostly because we are on holiday and I didn’t bring any sort of string. Just call me McGuyver … or not!

This is where you can get creative. You can use one large piece of fabric or several small strips. We found it was easier for small hands, if the fabric was wet when it was wrapped around the egg.

In addition, through trial and error we discovered that you don’t get large white spaces on your finished Easter eggs if you wrap the egg many times over with the string.

After you’ve wrapped the egg in silk you’ll need to wrap it in a clean white cotton. Normally, I’d cut up an old pillowcase, but our holiday accommodation doesn’t come with old pillow cases, so we used the white liner that was removed from the tie earlier.

Boil the eggs for 20 minutes in water and a 1/4 cup of white vinegar.

My kids are impatient, so I have a bowl of cold water waiting for the cooked eggs. I remove them from boiling water and let them sit in the cold water for 10 minutes.

The kids love unwrapping them! Every one is different.

Gorgeous eggs, I am going to the Thrift store right now to look for ugly ties. A great craft to do with the grandkids tomorrow while waiting for the turkey to cook. Thanks.

Love this idea! Since we are moving we didn’t do up any eggs this year, but I’m going to have to remember this for next year.

lace · April 5, 2010 at 9:36 am

I need to try this sometime.

I love the pebble placemat/runner.

Joanne · April 5, 2010 at 10:50 am

That is so stinkin’ cool. I think I’m going to give this a try. I can’t wait to show the kids.

Rory · April 5, 2010 at 4:01 pm

I love how intricate it looks. Just wondering how the design got transferred to the eggs?

albertblack · April 7, 2010 at 8:44 pm

Beautiful but is that safe to eat especially for children?

    Kara · March 22, 2016 at 3:11 am

    I’ve read they’re not safe to eat as the dyes used for silk ties are toxic and egg shells are porous so the toxins can seep into the eggs :( but they’re beautiful decorations and you can dry them out and use them year after year

    stacy Humphrey · March 26, 2016 at 5:53 pm

    I’ve heard the same thing. Not to let anyone eat the eggs after wrapping them in the silk. Is this true?

    Heather · February 8, 2017 at 2:43 pm

    Definitely NOT safe to eat.

    Roselyn Lutjen · March 26, 2018 at 1:54 pm

    NO! They are not edible according to the FDA and the dye manufacturers!

Liz@thisfullhouse · April 8, 2010 at 4:43 am

Oh…how…COOL…is…that!?!? We stay over my mom’s house every year and color eggs on Good Friday. I am so going to try this, next year. It looks easy enough, maybe even I could do it…juuuuuuust maybe ;) Thanks for sharing!

Tired Mom Tésa · April 12, 2011 at 12:06 pm

These are gorgeous! I saw this in a magazine once and have always wanted to do this but never knew where to find cheap silk ties – not sure why the thrift store never crossed my mind. Thanks for the tutorial – you’ve inspired me to give it a try this year!

Cookin' Canuck · April 12, 2011 at 7:25 pm

Those are so cool! I can’t wait to try this with my kids. By the way, I am a tad bit envious that you are in beautiful Banff.

marla · April 12, 2011 at 7:25 pm

These are sooooo beautiful & creative!

Anna Dueck · April 13, 2011 at 11:05 am

Will this work with egg shells that have the egg already blown out of them??
I’d prefer to do it this way so we could keep the beautiful eggs afterwards,
but not if it won’t work or the boiling will cause the shells to crack.

    Alexis · April 5, 2015 at 6:14 pm

    Yes. If you would like to keep the eggs you can remove the yolks. It will not affect them during the process. Just be careful during the wrapping process.

Anna Dueck · April 13, 2011 at 11:06 am

Will this work with egg shells that already have the egg blown out of them
or will the boiling cause them to break?

I’d prefer to blow the egg out so we can keep our beautiful creations.

    MommyKnows · April 14, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    @Anna Dueck, I’m not sure Anna! We really tied the ties on tightly and there was a lot of pushing, pulling and squeezing. I can’t imagine the blown eggs making it though that! Let me know if you try it and how it works out.


    Suzie · August 29, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    As long as the shell doesn’t crack over the course of several years the hard boiled egg inside will eventually disintegrate.

Anna Dueck · April 13, 2011 at 11:08 am

Will this work with egg shells that already have the egg blown out of them,
or will the boiling cause them to break?

I’d prefer to blow the egg out so I can keep our creations longer.

    Peter Parker · March 25, 2016 at 5:45 am

    Fill blown eggs with water using a small clear plastic disposable baster; applied fabric wet; wrap & twist tie carefully and blow & drain water out of eggs after dying OR instead of filling with water, fill steamer insert w/pebbles or marbles & place over eggs while boiling to keep them submerged.

sophistimom · April 14, 2011 at 12:16 pm

I’ve seen these done before, but never as beautiful as yours. They are gorgeous.

    Anyone want to bring ties to my house? I’ll provide the eggs and boiling water.

Brandi Peters Yates · April 15, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Im going to try this!

Debbie · April 15, 2011 at 10:10 am

This is probably a dumb question but, are the eggs edible?

    Ladyheart · March 18, 2016 at 3:54 pm

    I was wondering the same thing…not a dumb question!

    stacy Humphrey · March 26, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    Not dumb …. heard this several times. I’m doing this with my grandkids today and very concerned about just that. I wish I had an answer

    Heather · February 8, 2017 at 2:45 pm

    Not edible, for decoration only.

Barbara Barror · April 15, 2011 at 8:00 pm

Chelsea! Check it out!

Adria · April 15, 2011 at 1:20 pm

Am I understanding correctly that you do this to raw eggs and then boil them in this process?

Wildtree - Eat Well with Michelle · April 15, 2011 at 11:01 pm

These are beautiful! What a unique way to color eggs!

Dawn · April 15, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Um…so does anyone know if the eggs are still edible after doing this? I’d love to do with this my kids, but they also love to eat the eggs after….

    Heather · February 8, 2017 at 2:45 pm

    No, you do not eat eggs dyed in this manner. Especially since you don’t know what dye is used in the making of the fabric.

Paula Jean Krueger · April 16, 2011 at 2:37 am

This looks awesome! I so want to try this

    Rhea Tabler · April 16, 2011 at 2:47 am

    Paula Jean Krueger · April 19, 2011 at 1:18 am

    I tried it. They turned out soo cool!

Anna Dueck · April 16, 2011 at 5:06 pm

I did my project today, and the blown out eggs worked equally as well as the hard boiled ones, although we did have 1 casualty. After I blew the eggs out, I baked the shells in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 to strengthen them a little.

Lorien Johnson · April 17, 2011 at 4:35 am

what a neat idea!

Alison Wright · April 17, 2011 at 5:11 pm

I love this!

Sandy Menzel · April 18, 2011 at 1:19 am

I am so sorry I will miss the tie dye party this year… my personal caveat – use a glass or porcelain pot to boil the eggs!

    Margaret Hoekstra Vincent · April 21, 2011 at 12:08 am

    Sandy – why do you suggest that? I have neither glass nor porcelain pots, and was going to do this tonight!

    Sandy Menzel · April 21, 2011 at 12:50 am

    I am not quite sure… but I know that they do not turn out as nice if you use an aluminium or metal pot… probably something to do with reactive properties of the metal, silk, and vinegar.. they will work, just not as bright! Salvation Army has a ton!

    Margaret Hoekstra Vincent · April 21, 2011 at 2:10 am

    Dang, I was just there for the ties! Oh well — I’ll still try it. Good to know though — thanks!

Margaret Hoekstra Vincent · April 18, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Kim, did you ever say (or did anyone else?) if you attempted eating these or not? My husband grew up in a dye-the-eggs-and-leave-them-on-the-kitchen-table-for-decoration house, but I grew up in a eat-the-eggs house :) (and we eat a LOT of hard boiled eggs in our current house!)

    Margaret Hoekstra Vincent · April 18, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    You know what? Ignore that question. I just thought about it for a minute and realized the only reason I’d want to do this is for decoration, and so what the dye or vinegar or anything else does to the eggs is irrelevant. I want them sitting on the table looking pretty!

    Erica Fisher · April 18, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    You use vinegar for even the PAAS dye. Doesn’t hurt the eggs a bit.

      stacy Humphrey · March 26, 2016 at 5:59 pm

      The vinegar is not the problem… apparently the silk is poisonous or whatever dyes are in it I should say

    Margaret Hoekstra Vincent · April 18, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Good point (I’d forgotten). But the “leaving them out on the table” part might make them less edible :)

    Ali Knapp · April 18, 2011 at 6:59 pm

    I have a question – if you don’t eat them, and hard boil them thoroughly, do they eventually go bad and stink up the place?

    Erica Fisher · April 18, 2011 at 7:00 pm

    See, there’s debate there too. My grandmother questioned my refrigeration of the dyed eggs. She said they always left theirs out and ‘nobody ever died.’

    Margaret Hoekstra Vincent · April 18, 2011 at 7:36 pm

    @Ali – my family always refrigerated them, but the hubs’ family always left them on the table in a pretty basket. And then tossed them afterward, but I never smelled anything bad. I think if they aren’t cracked, they’d last … for at least the season.

    So Erica, they ate them?

    Margaret Hoekstra Vincent · April 18, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    P.S. did you see in the comments below someone blew hers out and baked the shells to harden them? I wonder if I have the patience, but it sounds rather brilliant.

    Erica Fisher · April 18, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Yup. They ate them! And blowing the eggs out is the way you start pysanky. It’s not as hard as it sounds – I did it for a craft for Liv’s class when she was in KG. I don’t think you’d have to bake them. I never did!

    Sarah Turley · April 19, 2011 at 10:28 am

    I once left some decorated eggs out for ages, and they did start to smell after a time, but they’d been there a while. I’ve also blown eggs but had never heard of baking them before. Seems like it would be a good way make them harder, but do you do that before dying them or after?

    Mike Wiggett · April 19, 2011 at 11:12 am

    Eat-the-eggs gets my vote, except in Czukie’s house, where pysanky is something special.

    Btw, do you ever get brown eggs in the US? We get both brown and white varieties in the UK, but I’ve only seen white ones over the pond.

      Ladyheart · March 18, 2016 at 3:59 pm

      yes we have white eggs…also blue, green, brown…just depends on the type chicken.

Diane Rodes Garland · April 18, 2011 at 4:39 pm

Ok, I’m trying this even if my son doesn’t want to help–too cool not to.

Tracy McGhee Moede · April 18, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    Susannah Ewing Boelke · April 19, 2011 at 9:16 am

      stacy Humphrey · March 26, 2016 at 6:01 pm

      I went to the thrift store and found hundreds of silk ties. And they were each a dollar

Elaine Napoli-Alwine · April 22, 2011 at 2:36 pm


Julie Scott · April 22, 2011 at 7:56 pm

If you want to keep them for a long time and don’t want rotten eggs laying around, put a pin hole in the ends and blow the runny egg out first and have scrambles eggs, then “tie-dye” the eggs.

Patty Caruso · April 23, 2011 at 7:50 am

We made these eggs twice yesterday!! First my daughter and I made a dozen and they turned out beautiful. Then we went to a egg painting party and brought the silk tie supplies. Everyone was so impressed at how easy and beautiful the eggs turned out!! We used both an enamel pot and stainless steel pot, neither made a difference.

Thank you so much, Happy Easter!


relationship adviser · July 9, 2011 at 9:33 pm

Creating fun moments with your children such are these are a great way to build their trust and rapport towards you. It is a great way to bond and give them all your time and effort for them to feel that they are loved and they are important. It is best if both parents could do this fun activities together because a complete family would always have an impact to a child. Nonetheless, if you are a single parent, it should not hinder you to become a better parent for your child.

Irina · March 9, 2012 at 1:31 pm

WOW…I know many ways of colouring eggs but this blew my mind away…so cool!!! Now I just need to explain to my husband that some of his old ties can really be “thrown” away…and try this.

Adam J. Seidl · March 30, 2012 at 9:33 am

Alas, it appears that you CANNOT eat these eggs. In this very well researched post (link to follow), Jacqueline Wilson talks to a dye expert and an FDA Representative about the dyes used to dye silk. Both sources indicate that some of the ingredients in those dyes are toxic.

Too bad, because this was really neat to look at–but I come from a background where not eating the eggs would be considered a terrible waste of eggs.

Any ideas how to get around this?

    Derek · April 18, 2014 at 11:17 pm

    We’ve dyed ours with silk ties for many years, and always eat them. Kudos to Ms. Wilson (WritRams) for actually calling people, but she did not get any authoritative answers. The dye guy just said he didn’t know, and the FDA guy just said it wasn’t approved (huge surprise). That’s just bureaucratic baloney. Enjoy your eggs.

    stacy Humphrey · March 26, 2016 at 6:03 pm

    Blow them out.. make scrambled eggs with the “insides “

Erika · April 5, 2012 at 12:22 pm

These are lovely, but I have to wonder if they are safe to eat. If you buy the ties second hand, who knows what kind of chemicals (dry cleaning) they might contain. I would worry they would leach into the eggs.

Szimi · July 8, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Oh, they are so beautiful! would they work with silk scarfs?

Can you tell me the purpose of the cotton outer wrap?

Ginger · March 31, 2014 at 11:29 pm

You can save hard boiled eggs for years in a dry place, uncovered. I discovered this by accident when one Easter some were not found until the next year. Eggs have to be free of cracks. I have had one especially pretty one for over 10 years.

Pat · April 5, 2014 at 10:08 pm

does anyone know how long you can keep these eggs

Michael · April 9, 2014 at 5:44 am

Do be careful about eating them, some of the Azo dyes can be quite poisonous, and I don’t know if any of the toxins may permeate the shell.

Mary · April 16, 2014 at 6:42 pm

I tried this and my eggs came out really light in color and I used the darkest ties I could find. Does it matter what kind of pot I’m using to boil them in? I have non stick do I need to use something else?

Robbin Vokes Lenardon · April 20, 2014 at 10:01 pm

Wow! Who woulda thought? :-)

Martha · July 30, 2014 at 4:39 pm

What a great idea! I love it and plan to share it with my grandchildren.

Kathi · April 1, 2015 at 6:39 pm

No. The eggs are not edible. They are for decoration only, like those ornamental Ukraine eggs. The egg inside eventually dries up, and they do not stink as long as the shell is intact.

Diane · April 1, 2015 at 9:02 pm

I am all set to go with some silk ties and egg shells (I previously blew the egg out of the shell. I am wondering if I still boil for 20 minutes or less, since I am not concerned about cooking the eggs. Plan to do this with granddaughter on Friday.

sarah · April 3, 2015 at 6:28 pm

So I’m having a problem finding silk ties I can only find polyester call me blonde but is it the same thing?

Jessica Bauer · April 5, 2015 at 3:02 am

Are these edible still? I just tried them and did pretty good but then was told you can’t eat them

Megan · January 4, 2016 at 7:42 pm

Can you do this with anything other than eggs? I would like to show my students how to dye something but I don’t think eggs would make it home.

maree · January 28, 2016 at 10:01 am

thankyou for such a fun easter project, which I know the grandchildren are going to have the best time creating. Now all I have to do is get my butt to vinnies asap!!!

emhunter83 · February 24, 2016 at 1:44 am

Love the idea… Looking forward to trying it this year. Thank youl

karen · March 19, 2016 at 8:11 pm

Can you use plastic eggs?

Mary Ann · March 21, 2016 at 3:05 pm

Thanks for this great idea. I plan to try it with my grandchildren this week. I’ve already started blowing out the eggs. It’s time consuming but not difficult. I’m just throwing in my two cents here, but I would not eat the eggs if you dye them with this method. The silk dyes will surely leak through the porous egg shell, just as Paas does. Paas is food coloring and edible, but not dyes for fabric. I especially wouldn’t let children consume it. Again, thanks for the detailed instructions . I’m very excited about trying this. I don’t have any ties that my hubby is willing to part with, but I am going to look for some silk remnants in a fabric store.

Cynthia Austin · March 24, 2016 at 1:07 pm

I am doing these right now. Which side of the tie is to be put on the egg, inside or outside? I have it done both ways because I’m not sure.

susan baker · March 25, 2016 at 2:01 am

I have made these, they come out beautiful

Jeff Behn · March 30, 2016 at 7:12 pm

These are very cool! My only question is that 20 minutes seems like a LONG time to boil eggs. Is that much time required for the color to transfer? Also (ok I lied about the one question) does 1/4 cup of vinegar cook through the shells and affect the flavor of the eggs?

Rukamen · January 8, 2017 at 4:31 pm

What a great fun thing to do with the kids, bookmarked!

Pat · April 9, 2017 at 6:53 pm

I do these very year and they are beautiful. I never see an answer fly my question. Can you use the silk more than one time?

Laina Fisher · April 15, 2017 at 2:25 am

Can you eat the eggs that are “tie” dyed?

Jolette · March 19, 2018 at 3:12 am

i have tried some tonight out of some ties I had already cut up and had scraps left. So now I don’t know which were 100% silk but soon find out after they are “cooked”. some have no color transfer while others have a little. I have not gotten anything near as colorful as your yet.
