She Begins By Wrapping An Egg In Silk. The End Result Is Stunningly Beautiful. – Starting with fresh unboiled eggs, Kendra shows a craft that perhaps was done by your great grandmother. She suggests going to a thrift store to find 100% silk scarves or ties. After cutting them into smaller pieces, wrap them in the silk with an outer layer of white fabric twisted together. Next you simply boil the eggs in water with added vinegar for 15 minutes. After cooling, the pattern on the silk transfers the eggs. The results are so beautiful!
