Natural Dyed Easter Eggs
Dyeing Easter eggs is one of our favorite Easter traditions. Recently, I have been in awe of all these beautiful natural dyed Easter eggs all over Pinterest. This is something that I have been wanting to try it for a few years, but for one reason or another it has not happened until now.
How to make Natural Egg Dye
After reading a few posts on which combinations of veggies and fruits created the best colors, we stated chopping. We chose to use blueberries, spinach and beets.
We placed our eggs in boiling water, vegetables and vinegar, and boiled for 30 minutes.
Most of the posts I read, strained the veggies from the dye. I decided to skip that step and place my eggs in along with all the chopped up veggies. I’m not sure if that was where this little project went wrong or if it was something else…but check out these muted colors.
The front 2 eggs were dyed in blueberries. The left 2 eggs in spinach and the back 4 eggs in beets. I was expecting bright beautiful eggs, however we ended up with muted and dull colors. Weird.
The kids claimed the eggs looked like potatoes, bummer. Totally not the look I was going for. I guess I should keep trying. Anyone else tried natural dyed easter eggs with good results?
