NaturallyDyedEggs

 

In the spirit of Easter, I’m going to share how you can create your own natural egg dye using household ingredients. Now if making your own dye sounds scary, have no fear.The recipes I’m sharing don’t require many ingredients or steps.
Trust me, if the instructions were too elaborate, I wouldn’t be doing it myself….I have other things I want to do over Easter Break which may or may not include getting into some sweets 😉 

Orange:  Bring 2 tablespoons paprika and 2 cups water to a boil in a pot.Boil for 5 minutes. Pour the colored liquid into a cup or bowl, and stir in 1 tablespoon vinegar.

Yellow: Bring 2 tablespoons turmeric and 2 cups water to a boil in a pot. Boil for 5 minutes. Pour the colored liquid into a cup or bowl, and stir in 1 tablespoon vinegar.

Brown: In a bowl, mix ¼ cup coffee granules and 2 cups of boiling water together. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar.

Lavender: Mix 1 cup grape juice and 1 tablespoon vinegar.

Blue Gray: Mix 1 cup frozen blueberries with 1 cup water, bring to room temperature, and remove blueberries.

Now too hard right? Happy Easter Weekend everyone!
