Eco Friendly Easter Egg Dye

By:

0 Comments

Say goodbye to harsh chemicals and hello a fun Easter craft for adults and kids alike! Eco-Friendly Easter Egg Dye from Tiffany Windsor uses elements found in nature. No need to worry this holiday season! Have fun and get creative instead.

Eco-Friendly Easter Egg Dye
 

Materials:

  • Eggs (white eggshells preferred)
  • Water
  • Pans (for boiling eggs and for simmering dyes)
  • Vegetables, herbs, berries (I used beets, blueberries, onion skins, turmeric, red cabbage, alkanet)
  • Kitchen string, rubber bands, stickers and other materials for embellishing eggs
  • Easter grass, Easter basket or small clay pots for display

Instructions:

  1. Boil eggs for 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature or place in refrigerator overnight.
     
  2. Prepare dye according to instructions by simmering your veggies, herbs or berries. Let cool and pour into dipping bowls. Remember that you will want the bowl deep enough to immerse entire egg.
     
  3. Decorate eggs with string or stickers or rubber bands.

  4. Place decorated eggs into dye baths for several hours or until desired color is achieved. Remove from dye bath and let set on paper towel. Do not rub excess dye as you may remove more color than desired. (Although a cool looking technique is to dab with paper towel or plastic wrap to create interesting textured design.)
     
  5. Carefully remove decorations to reveal design. Let eggs dry completely and display in basket filled with Easter grass or tiny clay pots.

  6. To create this layered color effect, pour a small amount of dye into the bottom of a bowl. Place egg into dye bath. Rotate egg 1/4 turn every hour to create color layers.
