How to make dyes
If you can boil water, you can make natural egg dyes! The process is very simple, you can make multiple dyes at once. Feel free to be creative and try different dyes.
All these natural dyes for eggs can be made using the same simple instructions.
Mix a cup of water and dye in a saucepan. Boil.
Once the dye liquid is boiling, turn the heat down and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Tip: If you want to make the dye darker, let the dye boil for a longer time. If you want to make the dye lighter, let the dye boil for a shorter time.
Remove the pan from the heat and let the dye cool for 30 minutes.
Pour the dye through the filter into another pot.
Add a tablespoon of vinegar and a pinch of salt for each cup of liquid you use.
How to dye eggs
Unlike traditional store-bought dyes, natural egg dyes take longer to work. Be sure to plan ahead, because your eggs need to be soaked in the dye for at least eight hours.
Put the eggs in a single layer in a rimmed container.
Pour a color of dye on the eggs until they are submerged.
Carefully put the egg and dye container in the refrigerator.
Let the eggs sit in the refrigerator overnight or about eight hours.
In the morning, remove the eggs from the tray and gently wipe off the excess dye from each egg with a paper towel.
Dispose of any dye left in the container.
Enjoy your beautiful naturally dyed eggs!
