Today the girls and I once again migrated to Char's house to make some fun Easter crafts with some friends. First up are "tie-dyed eggs". You literally use a neck tie to decorate the eggs. Char just happened to have a whole bunch of OLD ties, but if you don't have any, try the thrift store. Sometimes the best eggs were the ugliest ties. The tie has to be 100% silk, but then you wrap the egg, boil it in water and vinegar, and voilla...the pattern from the tie transfers to the egg. We probably did at least 2 dozen, but here are some of my favorites. I wish I had a better camera so you could see how cool they really look, but there you go! The next craft was chick cake pops. They are little balls of cake dipped in chocolate, then decorated like spring chicks.Jami mentioned that she was going to be making these, so I decided to copy her and do it as well. I was surprised how cute they turned out! They definitely don't look as awesome as the professional's, but I think we did a pretty darn good job. My girls loved these and couldn't wait to eat them! Thanks for a fun day ladies!
