How to Make Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs:

  1. Hard boil white eggs; let cool.

  2. Make your natural dyes; let cool. See below for further instruction.

  3. Gather some beautiful leaves, flowers, herbs, stems, feathers or any nature finds you think would make nice prints for your eggs. See below for examples.

  4. Place one nature find on top of one egg, press with one finger as you gently wrap, cover and tie a cheesecloth around the egg, securing the nature find. Repeat with remaining eggs.

  5. Place your cheesecloth covered eggs or plain eggs into your natural dyes.

  6. Let them sit until the desired intensity of color is achieved ( I find 3-6 hours to be the sweet spot!).

  7. Let the eggs dry on a baking rack, unwrap, and enjoy!

How to Decorate Easter Eggs with Nature Prints:

  1. Gather small leaves, flowers, herbs, stems, feathers or any other nature finds you think would look good and fit well on the side of an egg.

  2. Take one hard boiled egg and press your nature find against one side.

  3. Carefully place a small square of cheesecloth over your egg while simultaneously lifting your finger. Press the nature find through the cheesecloth into the palm of your hand as you fully wrap, twist and tie the remaining cheesecloth tightly (see photos below).

  4. Submerge your eggs wrapped in cheesecloth into your natural dye baths (see above).

Tips for Naturally Dyeing Eggs:

  • Have fun experimenting!

  • You can add more or less of superfood powders to the dye bath dependent upon how subtle, or intense a color you are trying to achieve.

  • Do not have cheesecloth? Try using a section pantyhose or any old rag or torn cloth you can find. You can use rubber bands to secure if need be.

  • Experiment with soaking times for different intensities of color, too.

  • White eggs work best for soaking up and displaying natural dyes, but feel free to experiment with other eggs.

  • You can also wrap eggs with unique, deeply textured cloths and fabrics for another fun print variation.

  • The vinegar helps the dye stick to the eggs, but in a pinch, if you are out, you can omit the vinegar. Just be certain to soak longer.
