Tis the season for Egg Dying!


After years of designing Easter eggs for articles, these are my favorite because they are so easy to make and beautiful.

Create these eggs with the food coloring you have in the kitchen. A few drops of color in one cup water and 1 tablespoon white vinegar. Use hard boiled eggs. For really pale eggs, just a few minutes per egg

Create the brown splatter with a toothbrush. Mix all the food coloring together to create brown black , dip toothbrush bristles in coloring, blot off extra liquid, and run fingers against bristles to splatter.

Thats an upside down flower pot painted yellow I used for the base with the planter dish resting on top
Green grass makes a nice border!

  1. I like the speckled effect you've added to the eggs. It makes them much more interesting.
