Dyeing Easter Playsilks & Eggs

Dyeing Easter Playsilks & Eggs
A Simple Craft in Color Mixing & Dyeing

What You'll Need:

  • Playsilk Dye Kit
  • 6 regular eggs
  • Jars (one for each dye color)
  • Large pot
  • Spoon


Start by placing all of your eggs in a large pot. Fill your pot with water until it is covering all of the eggs. Bring to a boil and then turn off the heat. Place a lid on your pot and let the eggs cook for 5 minutes.


While you are waiting for your water to boil you can start preparing the dyes. Empty one bag of each color dye into its own separate jar. Add 1 teaspoon of vinegar powder to each jar. Dissolve the dye and vinegar powder with a cup of hot water and give it a stir. Fill your jars with warm water (enough to cover your eggs).

Place your eggs and Playsilks in the jars of dye and let sit for 10-15 minutes. When ready, ring Playsilks out and place them outside on a clothesline to dry. Once dry, iron your Playsilks to make them shiny and smooth. Take eggs out and place on paper to dry.
