Tie Dye Easter Eggs
from Crafty Morning

Supplies Needed:

Food Coloring
Hard boiled egg
Kleenex or Paper Towel
Rubberband/hair binder
Spray bottle/water

Start by wrapping a hard boiled egg inside a kleenex and tie it off with a hair binder. Then randomly drop food colors on it leaving spaces in between.

You’re supposed to use a spray bottle but if you didn’t have one fill a cup with water and drip it off your fingers until the colors spread. Leave it to dry overnight and it really is like opening a present! You won’t believe how many colors the egg forms when you only used red, yellow, and green.

DIY DYED ROBIN EGGS DECORATING FOR CHILDREN FOR TODAY

DIY Dyed Robin Eggs | HonestlyYUM

DIY DYED ROBIN EGGS

You’ll need:

  • a dozen white, hard boiled eggs
  • 1 head of red cabbage
  • 4 tsp of white vinegar
  • edible metallic gold paint
  • thick bristle paintbrush or old toothbrush

Start by roughly chopping a head of red cabbage. Put the cabbage in a large pot with 5 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 30-45 minutes. Allow the cabbage to cool completely before straining the cabbage out of cabbage dye. Stir in 4 tbs of white vinegar.

Place the eggs in a deep baking dish and pour the dye over the eggs. You’ll want to have each of the eggs completely submerged and not touching each other. But hey – the dye is purple!! That’s right. Just wait. You’ll only have to wait as long as an hour to see the magic happen.

For a lighter robins egg blue, you only need to leave the eggs in the dye for about 1-2 hours. Because the bottom of the eggs make contact with the baking dish, you’ll want to rotate the eggs every half hour or so. When you pull an egg out of the dye, after 1-2 hours, you’ll notice the color will look super faint. It’s okay. The color will darken and develop a richer, greenish hue as it dries. I know, magic.

I wanted an ombré of blues so I took a few of eggs out after an hour, after two hours, after three hours and after four hours. If you are going to leave the eggs for longer than that, or overnight, I suggest putting the eggs and dye in the fridge.

Once the eggs have dried completely, you can leave them as they are or spray them with edible gold paint for a pretty speckled effect. Lay the eggs on a few sheets of paper towels. Dip a dry bristle brush or old toothbrush into the paint and run your index finger along the bristles above the eggs. Let the paint dry before splattering the opposite side.

Your edible, robin eggs are finished!

Oil Marbled Easter Eggs II
from Crafty Morning
Supplies Needed:
Oil
Hard boiled eggs (or blow them out)
Food Coloring
Water
Cups
Spoon

You will first want to dye the hard boiled eggs or egg shells a solid lighter color.
Pour about 1-1/2 inches of water in a cup and add in your food coloring. We added a lot more the second time to make a darker color. After you get the right shade, add 1 TBSP of oil (we used vegetable oil but i’m sure you could use olive oil, etc.) to the cup.
Using a spoon, put the egg into the mixture and roll it around a bit. You will see the how the oil affects the colors, so cool! Take it out and put them on a drying rack. Let them completely dry before you touch them!
