Want to learn how to dye eggs naturally? If you're like me, you always wait until the last minute for holiday prep. Check out our natural easter egg dying tutorial that uses a variety of items that you probably already have laying around in your kitchen. We used to have a plant-dyed scarf class at One Strange Bird and I thought it would be really fun to see if I could dye eggs the same way. It worked and I loved the natural hues the ingredients created. Scroll down to see which ingredients create each color. Save the left over dyes in jars to reuse on other craft projects.
Supplies Needed: vinegar, coffee, turmeric, red cabbage, beets, spinach, onion skins, pots, and jars.
Step One: Hard boil your eggs
Step Two: Roughly chop your veggies and gather up your supplies.
Step Three: Add your ingredients to a pot and add 2 X the water. Boil on low for one hour. Add 1/2-1 cup of vinegar to each mixture after boiling
Step Four: Pour into jars (or glasses) after the dyes have cooled slightly. Gently lower your hard boiled eggs into the dyes. I left mine in the refrigerator over night. Once you are done, just gently pull out of the jar and dab dry with a paper towel. YAY!!
