Coloring Eggs

This year, I decided to try my hand at dyeing eggs with some all-natural recipes. 
The fact remains that I can’t cook. At all. I even had to look up how to make a hard-boiled egg.
I got the all-natural dye recipes here. We decided to make Jade Green {made from 6 red onions ?!? WHO KNEW??}, Red-Orange {made from paprika}, Pink {made from beets} and Purple {made from grape juice}.

 

 

{In case there was any question, cooking six red onions doesn’t smell good.}

 

 

                                  {The onions got banished to the back patio.}

{My 4-year-old hard at work}
{Drying.}
The colors were subtle, but lovely. After we were done, I read the part about keeping the eggs in the dye overnight in the fridge. Would definitely have helped make the colors richer. 

Do you have any other tips and tricks for naturally dyeing eggs? Let us know in the comments!

 
Have a great weekend, everyone!
