A friend at work told me about a wonderful egg-decorating technique I had not heard of before. Using 100% silk ties (or boxers!) you can transfer the pretty patterns onto the egg shells, making for a very intricate design. This technique was demonstrated on The Martha Stewart Show several years ago - an episode I clearly missed. I love how they look, and I also love how relatively simple they are to create. Here is a very thorough tutorial about how to make them: click here.
