Silk Dyed Easter Eggs In The Instant Pot (Dying Easter Eggs in Your Instant Pot)

Show Some Love!

I bet you never thought to dye Easter Eggs in Your Instant Pot. I did, Silk Dyed Easter Eggs In The Instant Pot, at that.

No more slotted spoon, no more waiting while eggs are completely submerged in a dye bath that you had to stand and count out 20 drops of dye.

For this project, I headed right to our local thrift stores and went on the hunt for some silk ties.

When I was looking, I wanted to make sure that I found ties that were of a desired color and pattern. I mean the uglier, the better.

I have an abundance of colorful ties, and they were super cheap!

If you buy used, you will have a very affordable project with dying these eggs.

What I love for in ties are ones that have pretty bold or colorful patterns.

Granted some of the ties looked pretty ugly to wear, but I was amazed at the beautiful print it made on the Easter eggs.

Because you will be cutting the ties, you want to make sure you aren’t spending a ton of money on them. 

They need to be 100% silk ties, or they won’t work as well or at all.

You can also use silk from a blouse or scarf if you have anything like that in your closet that you don’t mind cutting up and using your eggs.

I aim to buy an arrangement of colors and patterns, the uglier the better.

You never know what parts of the pattern and colors will transfer to the egg, it is always like opening a Christmas present and waiting to see what it looks like.

I love grabbing darker colors like reds, purples, blues; they generally transfer really well.

Look at these eggs and all the stunning prints that came out. I love them all, and they turned out so well!

The kids had a blast helping mom make these masterpieces!

I know as the Easter season comes closer we will be making a lot more of these.

We are on the hunt for even more ties! I love the eggs that have the grey, dark blue, purple, and reds on it.

They turned out to be my favorite I think out of the whole bunch.

A couple of the eggs almost have a marble effect to them, which I thought was pretty awesome too!

Supply list and coloring instructions: 

100% silk Ties that you are okay with cutting up. You want to make sure they are colorful and have patterns, as it will make your eggs have more design.

Old worn out white or light grey shirts that are okay to get ruined.

Rubber bands or you can use twist ties if you have some handy.

How do you dye eggs with silk ties?

First, you want to cut the stitching out of the ties, and cut pieces so that you have a large enough piece that you can completely cover your egg.

Take your tie scrap and wrap it around your egg carefully with the print side of the pattern touching the egg. Then secure it with your rubber bands or twist ties.

Next, you want to take your worn out a shirt and cut a big enough piece to wrap around the egg. This is going to help prevent the colors from bleeding out to the other eggs in the instant pot. Secure it around the egg with a rubber band as well.

Just follow the easy instructions to get the finished end result of silk dyed eggs. With just eggs and a half cup of vinegar, you have some of the most beautiful eggs ever!

When the weeks draw closer, and Easter is on the horizon people all over the world stock up on eggs, hard boil them and begin to pull out dye.

From silk dyed Easter eggs, shaving cream or cool whip to classic vinegar colors, we all sit down with our kids to dye eggs.

But, have you ever stopped to think why we do this?

Where did this tradition begin or how did it get started? Let me help bring in some history behind the idea of coloring eggs in whatever form you choose.

New Life 

An egg can resemble new life in old traditions.

With Easter being a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus, many find that years ago having eggs during the Easter season was to symbolize the new life of Jesus.

Forbidden for Lent 

One explanation is that eggs were initially forbidden to eat during the Lent season, so those who followed this would paint and decorate hard-boiled eggs, and then once the fasting was over, they would eat the eggs on Easter as a form of a celebration.

King Edward

One more option is that King Edward ordered that 450 eggs be colored and then decorated with a gold leaf, and given out as gifts to the royal household one year.

Because of this, it became a quick tradition for all other households in England and then spread more.

 Red Egg

Another story is that when Mary went to the crucifixion on Good Friday, she brought an egg with her.

When Mary was at the cross Jesus’ blood dripped on the egg coloring it red.

An additional story is that she was weeping and asked a soldier to be kinder to her son Jesus, and gave him an egg.

Her tears fell onto the egg, and the colors of her tears changed the color of the eggs.

Now I can’t say one of these stories are true, but I will say they are interesting to me to hear and learn.

No matter what the history truly is that started this tradition, I am glad it came about.

There are so many unique and different ways to color eggs, and to create those special memories of the fun designs we did for the year.

I hope if you make these Easter Eggs with Silk Ties you will have success as we did.

We are already stockpiling newly printed silk ties for next years Easter egg dying day.

I can’t wait to see what fun patterns will come out of the new ones we will buy throughout the year.
