How to Naturally Dye Easter Eggs

Once I started dying easter eggs naturally it ended my long relationship with Paas dye kits. I do, however, miss the wire wands. I first learned about this technique of dying eggs from Martha Stewart magazine. Click here for the original link. For the dye, I used red beets for a mauve color, turmeric for a golden color, cabbage for a robin eggs blue color and coffee for a rich brown color. The procedure is easy but it is time consuming. I prefer to let the eggs soak overnight. It allows the color to really penetrate.easter egg 4The collectionIMG_1926 copyDyed with beetsIMG_1932Dyed with cabbage
