For this decorating trick, use any unwanted neckwear from Dad's closet, or buy silk ties from a thrift shop. A bath in hot water transfers the tie's patterns to the eggshell with magical ease.
Cut 5 to 6 inches off the wide end of the silk necktie and unfold the fabric.
Snugly wrap the fabric, right side against the egg, and secure it with the rubber bands.
Place the wrapped egg in a pot of boiling water for 15 minutes.
Take the egg from the pot with the spoon. When the egg is cool enough to handle, unwrap it and set it on a paper towel to dry.
