For centuries, families have been dyeing Easter eggs each spring. With the countless ways to create beautiful
eggs at every skill level, egg dyeing is accessible to everyone.
Natural foods you may already have in your kitchen are also perfect for creating color in an egg bath:
Yellow eggs : Use a standard dye bath with turmeric.
Pink eggs : Use a standard dye bath with the cooking water from beets.
Brown eggs : Use a strong coffee dye bath and add a teaspoon of salt to the recipe. Soak eggs overnight.
Blue eggs : Use the cooking water from red cabbage and add a teaspoon of salt to the dye bath recipe. Soak for 30 seconds up to overnight for desired color intensity.
Rubber band eggs: Before dipping eggs in the dye bath, wrap some rubber bands around them. To get more color variation, take off a few rubber bands as you dip the egg in additional colors.
Leaf, stencil or flower print eggs: Lay leaf, stencils or flowers over the egg and place it in a section of pantyhose.
Pull tight and rubber band both ends to hold the leaf or other shape in place.
Soak in dye bath,then carefully open the pantyhose and peel off the leaf. Make sure to let the egg dry completely before touching the stenciled area.
