How to use natural materials to dye Easter eggs

Looking to try another way to dye Easter eggs this year? Forget the food coloring or those little chalky colored pellets and try decorating them with natural ingredients. Here is what we used:

Naturally dyed eggs

  • Red cabbage
  • Onion peels
  • raw eggs
  • flowers, leaves
  • hosiery
  • elastic bands
  1. Fill two separate jars with chopped red cabbage and brown onion skins.
  2. Place flowers or leaves on a raw egg, securing it by putting it in a section of hosiery held tight with a rubber band.
  3. Tip: We put some water on the egg to help hold the flower or leaves on the egg before fixing it in the pantyhose.
  4. Place the egg in the pan with the cabbage or onion peels depending on the color you want.
  5. Add water to onion skins and cabbage jars. Bring the water to a boil.
  6. Simmer the eggs for 15 to 30 minutes.
  7. Let the pans cool, then refrigerate for five to 12 hours depending on how dark you want the dye to be.
  8. Remove the elastic and remove the eggs from the hosiery and remove the flower.
Boiling red cabbage to color the eggs a purple / blue tint.
