Naturally Dyeing Easter Eggs With Food

Easter is right around the corner, so I thought I better post on how to dye Easter eggs with food found right in your kitchen!

1 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon vinegar
Red Tea, shredded red beats, cranberries or cranberry juice (Red/Pink Color)
Blueberries or grape juice (Blue Color)
Tumeric, saffron, or chamomile tea (Yellow Color)
Spinach Leaves (Green)

1. Boil the water, vinegar, and “Food Color Ingredient” for 15 minutes
2. Strain the dye into glass or metal containers
3. Use medal ladles to hold the eggs – let the eggs sit in the dye longer for a deeper color

*If using juice, just use it straight – don’t boil

You can mix the dyes to create different colors. Decorate with tissue paper, stickers, ribbon and glitter. For jewels, useĀ Glue-Dots to adhere, which are found in the scrapbook isle at craft stores.
