Step #1. Convincing hubby to give up a few of his many ties he seldom ever wears.
Step #2. Cut squares from the ties, large enough to cover the eggs. Make sure the right side of the fabric touches the egg. Wrap each egg in the fabric. Secure with a twist tie. To make sure the fabric was tight against the egg, I wrapped the eggs in yarn. Next, cover the wrapped eggs with pieces of any white fabric, like pieces of an old pillowcase. I used an old white t-shirt. Secure each outer wrap with a twist tie.
Step #3. Place eggs in a pot and cover them with water to reach at least two inches over the eggs. Add about 1/4 cup of white vinegar. Bring to a boil, then simmer for a full twenty minutes.
Step #4. Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon or tongs.
Step #5. When the eggs are completely cooled to room temperature unwrap them. To make them shine, polish with a little vegetable oil. Refrigerate until you are ready to display them.
I found that the dark ties worked the best. For the sharpest imprint, the silk needs to be very tightly wrapped around the egg.
