Instructions

  • Hard boil white eggs; let cool.

  • Gather some beautiful leaves, flowers, herbs, stems, feathers or any nature finds you think would make nice prints for your eggs. See above in post for examples.
  • 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.
  • Place your cheesecloth covered eggs or plain eggs into your natural dyes.
  • Let them sit until the desired intensity of color is achieved ( I find 3-6 hours to be the sweet spot!).
  • Let the eggs dry on a baking rack, unwrap, and enjoy!
