diy: dyeing easter eggs

By: Catherine Therrien

It's the first day of spring, which means Easter is just around the corner. This past weekend, I thought I'd try my hand at dyeing some eggs but in an ombré effect. Check out how easy it is to create your own. dyed ombre easter eggs 1. To start, cover your working surface with a layer of plastic or old newspaper to soak up any splashes and spills. 2. Hard-boil your eggs (and let completely cool) or blow them out if you want to keep them from year to year. 3. I purchased a kit from my local Michaels store but you can always use food colouring (about 8 drops), hot water (1 cup) and some vinegar (1/4 cup). Here, I used a blue dye. 4. One at a time, gently drop a hard-boiled egg into the prepared dye bath and let rest for just a few seconds before removing, gradually increasing the amount of time with each egg to create an ombré effect. 5. Use an empty egg carton (or a ceramic one like mine) as a drying rack. Keep paper towel handy to blot off any excess dye from the bottoms of the dyed eggs prior to placing in the egg carton.
