Using old spices in your pantry and other items you may have lying around your kitchen, you can make natural egg dyes that are free of artificial ingredients and chemicals.

Ingredients

Preparation

Simply add the ingredient to boiling water and cook until you get the color you’re after. It’s important to note the eggs will be a lighter color than what’s in the pot. This isn’t an exact science, so add more ingredients or more water as you see fit.

Strain the ingredient (if necessary) and add 1 tablespoon vinegar to the dye. Allow the dye to cool a bit before dyeing the eggs. The longer you soak the eggs, the darker the color. Experiment and have fun!
