Dyeing natural Easter eggs is a fun and creative activity!

Here’s a simple guide.

Prepare the Eggs.

Hard boil your eggs and let them cool completely before dyeing.

Make sure they are clean and dry.

Prepare the Dye:

You can use various natural ingredients to create dyes.

Red/Pink: Use beets or cranberries.

Yellow: Use turmeric or saffron.

Blue/Purple: Use red cabbage, blueberries, or purple grape juice.

Orange: Use yellow onion skins.

To make the dye, simmer the natural ingredient in water for about 15-30 minutes. Strain out any solids and let the liquid cool.

Add a tablespoon of vinegar per cup of strained liquid to help the dye adhere to the eggs.

Dyeing Process.

Place your cooled, hard-boiled eggs gently into the dye liquid.

Let them soak until they reach your desired color. This can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours, depending on the intensity of color you want.

For a marbled effect, you can gently crack the eggshells before placing them in the dye.

Drying and Finishing

Once the eggs reach your desired color, remove them from the dye using tongs or a slotted spoon. Place them on a wire rack or paper towels to dry completely.

Optional: If you want a shiny finish, you can rub a small amount of olive oil onto the eggs once they’re dry.


Arrange your beautifully dyed eggs in a basket or egg holder, and enjoy your Easter decorations!
