Easter is right around the corner, and with that comes a long list of holiday traditions. If you have kids in the family (or are just a fan of arts and crafts), that may mean heading to the grocery store to grab a few dozen eggs and those tiny packs of egg dye. But why not try something different this year? Instead of each egg coming out the same three colors from the traditional egg dying kits, there are plenty of ways to naturally dye Easter eggs with simple and eco-friendly recipes you make at home.
By embracing these eco-friendly tricks, you'll be able to make each batch of eggs a different color of the rainbow. Not to mention you probably have most of the ingredients in your house, which can save you some money. Who doesn't love that?
But the dying ingredients aren't the only thing that will affect the shade of your egg's shell. If you want your eggs to have a dark, rich color, then you should use brown eggs. If you want them to be more vibrant and jewel-toned, then opt for ones with white shells.
So grab those eggs — gently, of course — and get ready to create some colorful Easter eggs... the natural way.
