Yesterday's Ties, Today's Eggs

After the success of last year's Easter eggs, we decided to dye more eggs in old neckties. Cyn collected various ties from DI & Goodwill throughout the year in anticipation. Here are our best.

Paisley - ugly on a tie, great on an egg.

This was from a floral tie that we thought would be really pretty on an egg. Unfortunately, most of the colors didn't transfer over to the egg.

This is a repeat tie from last year.

The year's best Easter eggs. Purple for the win! Let's examine them individually...

This turned out far better than expected. The muted square in the background is actually the main feature on the tie - kinda strange that it didn't bleed onto the egg better. I guess you never know how these will turn out.

This egg is the first time we made an egg out of one of my old ties. Strange part is, it wasn't a purple tie; it was red. Weird. Power tie = power egg.


  1. Wow, these are soooo cool! I have never heard of using ties to color eggs, you must share how you do it!

  2. I want to do that. I bought ties last year and still have them...maybe next year?

  3. Amazing looking eggs! I want to know how to do that too! Mom
