Coloring Easter Eggs – There’s Still Time

You don’t have much time left if you want to dye eggs for Easter Sunday. I just dyed mine this morning.

I was inspired to get to it and dye my Easter eggs by another blogger who did a post  about Dyeing Easter Eggs! Thanks LB&J.

I had a Martha Stewart magazine on my coffee table with beautifully colored eggs on the  cover. In the magazine I found detailed instruction on how to make the eggs. I only followed some of the instructions. Mostly about using electrical tape to make the designs. I kind of just guessed as I went along. I didn’t want to make a big production out of it.  I wanted to keep it fun and simple. My daughter and I had fun working on them together. That is the most important thing to me.

I only wanted to use what I had on hand. No going to the store. This is what I used

Tools and StuffDyingEggs

  • Eggs
  • Cups
  • Forks
  • Electrical Tape
  • Food Coloring
  • Apple Cider Vinegar ( I did not have white vinegar)
  • Water

Directions:

The first thing I did was to blow out the eggs. You can learn how to blow out eggs here

Next, I made sure they were clean and dry.

I used the electrical tape to make the designs.  I just used scissors to cut shapes. Then I stuck the tape pieces onto the eggs. Try to seal the edges carefully.

I Squirt some dye into the cup added a swig of vinegar, then added some water (add enough water to submerge the eggs).

Now you are ready to dye the eggs.

Let the eggs sit in the water for a few minutes. Take them out using a fork or spoon and set them into the egg container.

Use a paper towel to dry the eggs completely before removing the tape.

That’s it. The eggs are done. Now just add them to your Easter Baskets or table centerpiece. I was much happier with the outcome after putting them into the baskets.

The Finished Product

I did some fast typing on this post, so please forgive the typos and such. I wanted to get the post before Easter LOL.

Happy Easter,

  1. Hey that is a really cool idea! I think I will do that next year. It does seem pretty easy!

  2. Thanks for stopping by. It really was easy. I think the hardest part is blowing out the eggs. This was my first time. I used a syringe with needle to help the process. It saved me from using my mouth on the egg.

  3. What a clever way to color Easter eggs…I’ll have to try this with my kids next year.

  4. Thanks Pam,
