Using enclosed pieces of colorful vintage silk neckties that you wrap around the eggs and a little boiling water and vinegar, the patterns come out magically–basically the pattern of the neckties but in a muted and totally unique way.Believe me, this is a fun and easy kit to help you funky up that Easter basket. And had I actually read the directions, I would’ve known to start with raw and not pre-boiled eggs. No matter: I can reuse the fabrics again and again, so I’m bound to a pro by the time Easter arrives. –Christina
