Easter Eggs

Happy Easter! Yes, we all had a good time dyeing the eggs this afternoon. That is just food coloring, but we used wax and rubber bands as resists, soaked it in dye baths or dripped food coloring directly onto the egg, and used salt afterwards as it was drying. Fun effects.


  1. Oooooo I love these eggs!!! Gorgeous color and what a great idea!! xo Cait

  2. We sit down as a family to do this, and everyone kind of eggs each other on. The techniques have been evolving over the years. This year we added the salt (I've been doing that with my silk painted scarves, and wanted to see what would happen), and the melted wax drips.

    So, what do you do to your Easter eggs?
