How to dye Easter Eggs Naturally
Easter is just around the corner and what would Easter be without colourful Easter eggs? To avoid artificial food colouring, we can also use natural colourings that can be obtained from plant products.
Natural Easter Egg Dye Ideas
Yellow Easter eggs: Use turmeric powder, chamomile tea or curry to make your egg shine in a sunny yellow.
Red Easter Eggs: Use beets or frozen raspberries to create a deep red.
Green Easter Eggs: Use spinach or matcha powder to achieve a fresh spring green.
Blue Easter Eggs: Use blueberries, cranberry juice, or red cabbage to achieve a heavenly blue.
Brown Easter Eggs: Use black tea or coffee to create an earthy brown.
Thats how it works:
Place the eggs in a saucepan and add enough water to cover them. Now you can add your desired natural dye.
Cook the eggs over a medium heat for about 10-12 minutes. Here you can decide whether you want them to be lighter or darker. The longer the eggs cook, the darker the color will be.
Now you can take the eggs out of the pot and let them cool down.
In the last step you can dip a cotton swab into Kalkex and create any desired pattern such as dots. Thus the color on the Easter eggs is dissolved and you can paint beautiful patterns.
Naturally colored Easter eggs are not only environmentally friendly, but also a great opportunity to let your creativity run wild. Try it out and enjoy your naturally self-colored Easter eggs.
