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
- Electrical Tape
- Food Coloring
- Apple Cider Vinegar ( I did not have white vinegar)
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.
