How to Tie-Dye Easter Eggs
See the original recipe here!
Here is what you’ll need:
* mugs or dipping cups
* vinegar and/or water
* dye tablets
* lots of newspaper or a plastic table cloth
* a large roll of paper towels or napkins- if they have an interesting texture, all the better
- Boil and air dry the eggs. Cover the table with newspaper or a plastic tablecloth. Prepare the cups of egg dye as directed on the package.
- Wrap a boiled egg in a paper towel or napkin. The more wrinkled you make it, the more interesting the pattern will be.
- Starting with the lightest color, such as yellow, spoon the dye over the egg. Use a few tablespoons for a little color or several all over the egg for a lot of color. Repeat the process for the next color, by spooning a different colored dye over the wrapped egg. You may spoon the dye in places that have already been soaked.
- When you’ve spooned all the colors you want over the egg, unwrap it to see your tie-dyed Easter egg!
- You may wish to gently squeeze or pat the soaked paper towel around the egg in between each color or occasionally throughout the process.
- Use complimentary color schemes such as yellow, orange, red and pink OR blue, purple, green and yellow for varied appearances.
- You’ll need to apply more dye at the base of the egg where the paper towel is thicker.
- For more color, use an egg that is dyed solid color, and then tie-dye it with darker colors.
